Conference attendees from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) may require a travel visa to enter the Schengen Area. If you require a letter of invitation to support your visa application, you have the opportunity to indicate this during the registration process.
A letter of invitation will be sent to you shortly after registering. If you want the hard copy of the letter, the shipment has a cost of about 35€, which will be added to your registration fee.
Consult the list of non-EEA countries whose nationals do not require a visa. In some cases, a biometric passport (ICAO compliant) is required to enter without a visa (see footnotes for your territory). Contact the Croatian embassy or consulate for your territory when in doubt.
The organiser is authorized to demand payment of registration fee before the visa procedure starts.
Please note that all costs are to be covered by the participant (verification tax and dhl post costs if needed).
Information from the official Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs website:
For foreign citizens: Since 1 April 2013, the Republic of Croatia has been applying the European Union’s Common Visa Policy. Pursuant to the Government’s Decision, the Republic of Croatia applies the Decision No 565/2014/EU according to which all third-country nationals who are holders of valid Schengen documents, as well as national visas and residence permits of Bulgaria, Cyprus, and Romania do not require an additional (Croatian) visa for Croatia. Further information is available under Visas.
The travel document which a third-country national is using to enter Croatia must be valid for at least another three months after the planned departure from Croatia and issued within the previous 10 years. This does not apply to EU/EEA citizens who can enter Croatia with a passport or an identity card, both valid for the duration of stay and exit from Croatia.
Visa requirements overview:
Third-country nationals who require a visa for Croatia can fill out the visa application form on-line at crovisa.mvep.hr (available in English, Russian, Ukrainian, Albanian, and Turkish language). Printed and filled out application form, along with other required documents, should be submitted to the competent Croatian Embassy/Consulate or visa centre or through an accredited tourist agency.
