Relocation to Croatia



Relocating to Croatia would be a breeze if an expat is already aware of the documents required for entry: A work visa, a business or work permit (usually provided by the employer), passport, two passport photos, birth certificate, job details including length of stay, criminal background check, proof of sufficient funds and inventory. An expat must report to the nearest Croatian police station within 24 hours of arrival in Croatia and apply for an extended residency permit. Some hotels apply for the permit on behalf of their client.

You can bring used household items duty-free as long as you can prove that they belonged to you for more than 6 months. Electronic appliances should be 220V, 50 Hz. For customs clearance of household goods, you do not have to be present, except when importing used motor vehicles. For used motor vehicles, it is duty-free for as long as you owned it for more than 6 months, and you can present its Certificate of Registration and title. Import customs clearance may take up to 1-2 days.
