|ZAGREB - Croatia on Saturday eased some restrictions at the nation’s borders which had been imposed due to the coronavirus pandemic.|
The decision, which was announced at Saturday press conference by Interior Minister Davor Bozinovic related to both Croatian citizens and foreigners who will now be allowed to enter under special circumstances.
"At this moment, the most important thing is that we have enabled those who either have business reasons to come to Croatia, of course our goal here is the economy. Croatian citizens can enter, foreign citizens can enter when they have economic or other justified reasons. If someone pays for the stay there is a possibility to let him in the hotel. For business reasons, citizens from outside the EU can also enter. We are moving towards liberalization, we have mechanisms, but we have also learned something and we can react as in the case of Brac," Bozinovic said.
As for the agreement on freedom of movement within the EU, without self-isolation measures or other restrictions, Bozinovic says that he expects that the negotiations of all 27 members will be slower and that bilateral agreements will be reached.
