    CROATIA is a quite strict country,and if you applay for visa ,you have to convince them (DIPLOMATS IN THE EMBASSY)that you will not stay in the country..!!! BUT IF YOU GET A "UK" visa then You"ll probably get and Croatian. GOOD LUCK::!!!!

    Hi there,

    I am an Indian National born and raised in the UAE. I am a resident in DUbai. I intend to travel to croatia and require a tourist visa. I was about to send my passport to either India or Egypt to get a tourist visa until I saw this:

    Government of the Republic of Croatia, at its session on 25 February 2010, adopted the decision to temporarily facilitate the entry of aliens on tourist visits to the Republic of Croatia on the basis of valid Schengen residence permits and visas. Consequently, the following categories of aliens temporarily, from 1 April to 31 October 2010, do not require a visa for entering the Republic of Croatia:

    Holders of valid Schengen residence permits;
    Holders of valid Schengen visas arriving on cruise ships sailing out of a port in one of the Schengen states;
    Nationals of the Republic of India and of the People’s Republic of China, holders of valid Schengen visas, who collectively and in an organised manner visit the Republic of Croatia as tourists, if in possession of a valid travel health insurance and arriving from the Schengen Area, and
    Nationals of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, the State of Qatar, the State of Kuwait, the Sultanate of Oman and the United Arab Emirates, holders of valid Schengen visas, if in possession of a valid travel health insurance.

    Does any one understand what this means? Does it mean this rule applies if you are travelling as a group or could an individual who entered from a Schengen state with valid schengen visa and insurance, be exempt from requiring a Croatia Tourist visa?

    Please advise.

    Hi all;
    I am an Egyptian Living in Cairo. I intend to visit a friend in Croatia for about 10 days maximum.
    I have visited the EU before at 2008 and still keeping the expired passport with the expired Visa. will this help?.
    I know there is an embassy in Cairo but can any one tell me what are the papers required for this kind of visa. The website states "Special Types of Travel Documents required for Visas" I have no idea what these papers might be.
    Many thanks in advance.

    My wife and I are booked on a 12 day Mediterranean Cruise on board Niew Amsterdam leaving Venice (Italy) on 04 June 2011 and disembarking at Barcelona (Spain) on 15 June 2011. We are Indian citizens living in India and hold valid Indian Passports and also Schengan Tourist Visas for this trip. As part of the Cruise itinerary the ship will dock at Dubrovnik, Croatia on Sunday 05 June 2011 at 10.00 AM and depart from there at 6.00 PM in the evening.
    (1) Do we have to take Croatia Visa from India if we want to go for a Shore excursion for the day?
    (2) Do we need to take Croatia Visa from Inida if we choose to stay on board while the ship is docked at Croatia?
    Please reply soon. Thank you.

    Having a visa is not that easy. Questioning how to get this is another story. Try to visit you embassy and ask how. And comply all the requirements.

  • Hi,I am a Bangladeshi Passport holder living in UAE.i like to go Croatia for traveling please advise where

    i can process my Croatian visa in uae as there is no embassy.

  • As of 22 July 2014 Croatia has become part of the Schengen Zone. as it is a very small country Croatia does not have many embassies, so you can apply for a Schengen visa for Italy  ( for example you can fly to Italy and then go on to Croatia) and that visa will also allow you to enter Croatia

  • Hello
    I am from India and I am planning to visit Croatia with My girlfriend this Summer
    I have all necessary document for Croatia visa except income tax return for last three years, I have only for 1 year
    Is it mandatory to submit 3 years Income tax return to get the visa

    Please advice
  • @sachingovil
    Unfortunately it is mandatory to submit 3 years income tax returns. Your visa will be refused if you submit only one years tax return
    Please see the required documents list
  • edited March 2017

    Thanks for your response, but I have started earning in 2015 only so practically it is not possible for me to file income tax return earlier.
  • @sachingovil
    Then its unlikely you will be granted a Croatian visa
