Recommendations for boaters and nautical tourism ports/marinas in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak

Nautical tourism ports/marinas are open to traffic unless they have been issued an order or a suspension decision by the Headquarters of the Civil Protection of the Republic of Croatia

Boaters entering the Republic of Croatia by boat shall complete border formalities at maritime border crossings.

If the persons on board arrive from particularly risky areas (at the present moment: the Chinese province of Hubei, including Wuhan, Italy, Heinsberg County in the German state of North-Rhine Westphalia, the South Korean city of Daegu, and Cheongdo province, Iran), they shall be quarantined (foreign nationals) or self-isolated (Croatian nationals). Information on particularly risky areas may be found under the following link .

Persons belonging to a particularly risky group – foreign nationals, are placed in organized quarantine at their own expense.  The Order on compulsory quarantine shall be issued by the border sanitary inspector and a traffic police escort to the quarantine is mandatory.   If the concerned persons do not want to quarantine, they must leave the Republic of Croatia by sea.

If the persons on board arrive from other risky areas (according to the latest statement of the National Headquarters of the Civil Protection of the Republic of Croatia), they shall be required to self-isolate.

Croatian citizens will be subject to the obligation of home quarantine/self-isolation, which must be reached by the shortest possible route.

Foreign nationals will be subject to the obligation of home quarantine/self-isolation who, upon entering the Republic of Croatia, must provide the Proof of Accommodation in the Republic of Croatia, which must be reached by the shortest possible route. In case of missing the stated proof, they must leave the Republic of Croatia by sea.

In case that the compulsory self-isolation is ordered, the persons commanding the vessel should navigate from marine border crossing to the nautical port/marina in which they have secured the berth.

Self-isolation on the vessel is not allowed but it must be carried out on land.

In case that quarantine is ordered, the persons commanding the vessel should navigate from marine border crossing to the nautical port/marina closest to the nearest quarantine point (county centre) where they have secured the berth.

As soon as the vessel is moored in the nautical port/marina, the persons on board are required to notify the respective service thereof, the contacts of which they shall receive at the marine border crossing.

Upon arrival, the concessionaire of the nautical port/marina is required to check if the persons on board the vessel have been issued the quarantine or self-isolation order and inform the marine border crossing station that inspected the vessel about the arrival of that vessel.

Persons shall provide their own transport to the place of the quarantine /self-isolation.  Transport to the quarantine is carried out only with the exclusive assistance of the Civil Protection Mechanism managing the quarantine.

Vessel care includes berth provision and disinfection of the vessel.  The charter company (for the charter vessels) or the owner of the vessel (for privately owned vessels) is required to provide the disinfection of the vessel.  The disinfection procedure must be supervised by the concessionaire of the nautical port/marina.
