Moving to Croatia



People relocating to Croatia will find the country’s climate pleasing, especially those who enjoy a touch of the Mediterranean vibe. With an emerging and developing economy, those moving to Croatia will be welcomed with an excellent opportunity to start a great new life abroad. Most of the immigrants in Croatia come from Serbia.

If you dream of walking along the Mediterranean coastline to watch the beautiful European sunset, then Croatia's 1778 kilometers of sandy beaches should be enough to lure you to your next home.

But more than the inviting, postcard-worthy sights, Croatia offers expats the chance for a relaxed lifestyle in a developing economy. Now, that's a perfect combination for any expat who wants to start anew!

"The paperwork in Croatia is a nightmare. No clear rules, no reliable information online and clerks will each interpret things how they want, so no two experiences for anyone are the same."- Sarah-Jane, Expat in Zadar, Croatia
