Airports in Croatia
Croatia has a total of nine international airports situated along the coast (Split, Dubrovnik, Pula, Rijeka, Zadar), in the continental part of the country (Zagreb, Osijek) and on islands (Mali Lošinj, Brač) via world-renowned airlines and low-cost carriers. These airports offer excellent connections to various destinations in Croatia.
The largest and busiest is Zagreb International Airport, followed by Split Airport, Dubrovnik Airport and Zadar Airport. Regular flights from and to many popular European destinations such as London, Paris, Amsterdam, and Frankfurt are available, mostly during summer season.
Prices can vary depending on the season, with peak season (July and August) being more expensive than off-season (April to June and September to October).
Visa requirements and Schengen visa
Croatia is a member of both the Eurozone and Schengen Area so if you are arriving from Europe waiting times at various check points should be greatly reduced.
Passengers who are flying within the Schengen Area, but their point of origin is outside the Schengen Area, must go through Schengen entry border control upon arrival in the Schengen Area.
Travellers arriving to or leaving Croatia from other Schengen countries are not required to present their passport or identity card if they are coming from a Schengen area country. Documents are still needed to provide identification if, upon arrival, you wish to book certain services like renting a car, boat and similar.
As for visa requirements citizens of countries that require a visa can check the entry requirements at the nearest Croatian embassy or consulate. If you hold a Schengen visa, you can enter Croatia and move freely within the Schengen Area.
If you happen to lose your passport or identification card the first step is to seek help from the nearest police station and report the document as lost. After that, you should contact the diplomatic mission or consulate of your country. They can issue you a temporary travel document that will allow you to leave Croatia. It might be a good idea to find and prepare all relevant numbers before starting your trip.
