Who Issues Passes to Move Between Cities in Croatia?

Total Croatia News

March 26, 2020 – As more official coronavirus advice becomes available in English, some contact numbers, clarification on ‘place of residence’ and who issues passes to move between cities in Croatia.

I am not the only person who is happy to see the official Koronavirus.hr website now partially available in English, although my relief is due to different reasons. 

With very little information out there, many people have been relying on TCN for their COVID-19, and while the increased interest is very welcome, the huge increase in responsibility was not. Thankfully, the TCN team has responded magnificently, and I am immensely proud of what they have produced in the last few very trying days.

Although the English information available on the official site is limited, it does cover the important stuff. 

Here is where you can find al the important phone numbers.

There is also a latest news section. You can, of course, follow the TCN live feed, which is updated every 15 minutes. 

And the page seems to give a little clarity to one of the biggest confusions so far – what exactly does ‘place of residence’ mean? This is what was published late on March 24, 2020.

The Civil Protection Authority announced new measures aimed at curbing the spread of the coronavirus, with Interior Minister Božinović revealing that citizens are not allowed to leave their respective local government units.

And here is some clarity on one more important issue – Who issues passes to move between cities in Croatia? The answer in full below:
