Croatia has announced that fully vaccinated Brits will no longer be required to show a negative PCR test when visiting the country.
Double jabbed Brits heading on Croatia holidays will still need to show proof of their vaccination, as well as filling out an entry form and having proof of accommodation booking.
The same rules will also apply for those who are able to show proof of recovery from Covid-19, although this itself comes with caveats. You’ll either need to to have a certificate confirming recovery and have received one dose of vaccine within eight months from contracting the virus, or a positive PCR or rapid antigen test that was performed between 11-365 days of arrival at the border.
All other UK travellers, including those who are not yet fully vaccinated, will need to show a negative PCR test result taken within 72 hours of arrival, or a rapid antigen test taken within 48 hours.
All travellers will need to fill out the entry form and have proof of accommodation booking.
Travelling with children under 12 years old will be exempt from needing to show a PCR test, provided they are travelling with parents or guardians who meet the above requirements.

Croatia isn’t the only country to have recently removed a requirement for PCR tests for double jabbed Brits.
Turkey’s tourism authorities recently confirmed that vaccinated Brits no longer need a test (although they will still need to show proof of vaccination). Unvaccinated visitors will still need to show a PCR test taken within 72 hours.
Travel restrictions have been easing in recent months as an increasing number of destinations have reopened their borders to tourists. (In fact, we’ve got a guide with a full list of countries open to Brits for holidays if you are thinking of going travelling).
Where Brits can go on holiday
Meanwhile, the UK’s own travel rules have also changed, with the amber list now being scrapped. Instead, countries will be placed on the red list or rest of the world list.
Anyone arriving from red list countries will need to spend 11 nights in a quarantine hotel costing £2,285 per adult.
Meanwhile the requirements for those coming back from the rest of the world list will depend on their vaccination status.
Those who are double jabbed will need to take one test, a PCR test on day two after landing. Those who are only partially vaccinated or unvaccinated, they will need to take a pre-departure test, and PCR tests on days two and eight, and self-isolate for 10 days.
