Austria puts Croatia on list of safe countries for travel
Austria has put Croatia in the category of safe i.e. stable countries from which, upon returning, it is not necessary to produce a PCR test, the Croatian National Tourist Board’s (HTZ) Austrian office said on Saturday.
Croatia has not been put on the list of at-risk countries from which returning to Austria will require a PCR test as of Monday, said Branimir Toncinic, director of the office.
“This is excellent news for Croatia’s entire tourism sector given that Austria this July, as well as this year so far, is among the top five foreign markets where we are generating the biggest tourist turnover. We expect the positive trends to continue on that market, where we are very intensively promoting ourselves as a safe destination,” said HTZ director Kristjan Stanicic.
According to eVisitor data, about 40,000 Austrians are currently vacationing in Croatia.
