Destinations

CROATIA

1. ENTRY TO CROATIA

To facilitate smooth entry to Croatia it is recommended that you apply on this link – Croatia Entry Form

This form is available in several languages. Once you complete the form, feedback will be sent to your e-mail address. When entering Croatia your passport will be scanned and the process will take much less time. Without this form submitted in advance it will take more time at the border crossing, queuing in a separate lane.

2. PROTOCOL FOR OPERATIONAL STAFF IN CROATIA

  • All Amathus Travel staff (guides and drivers) will be informed and trained on the new procedures and will be advised to keep the highest hygiene standards and social distancing during interaction with guests. They will be advised to wear masks and gloves and to use hand sanitizers on a regular basis.
  • Every day before starting their shift, they will need to measure their body temperature and if they have any respiratory problems, they will be instructed to consult their doctor.
  • Drivers are always recommended to wear face masks and to disinfect hands after handling luggage.
  • Documents should be checked without physical contact whenever possible.
  • Disinfectant needs to be prominently displayed at all times to disinfect hands, for staff and for guests if required.
  • Operational staff will emphasise the necessity of mutual distance and responsible behaviour as well as providing information on the current epidemiological situation in the country and the rules of self-protection prescribed by the Croatian Institute of Public Health

3. CLEANING PROCEDURES

Disinfecting surfaces is one of the key ways to minimize the spread of viruses. Guests should have their own face masks and disinfectant gel; guests should regularly wash their hands with soap and warm water or use an alcohol based disinfectant, or other agent which is safe for skin and has virucide properties according to the manufacturer’s instructions. These recommendations are very important and will be repeated to guests frequently.

4. EXCURSIONS & GUIDED TOURS

At the start of all guided tours and excursions, guests should be reminded to maintain physical distance (NB. people already travelling together do not necessarily have to). This will be done calmly but divergence from this advice will not be tolerated and guests failing to keep other guests safe will be asked to leave the excursion immediately.

5. HOTELS

At all hotel entrances there are disinfecting solution dispensers and guests must disinfect their hands when entering hotel. Reception areas are being disinfected on regular basis. Hotel staff will provide all necessary information about hotel’s policy concerning preventive measures and other services guests might require. All rooms and bathrooms are being cleaned and disinfected thoroughly after guests’ departure.

IMPORTANT NOTES

  • The agency will request guest contacts in case contact tracing will be needs-locating people who have been in contact with an infected person. The obtained contacts will be used exclusively for the purpose of preventing the spread of the infection, with privacy and data protection measures provided.
  • It is recommended to measure your temperature before going on the excursion or transfer.
  • In case guests or their family members develop symptoms that indicate the possibility of infection, they are obliged to cancel the excursion or transfer before departure. In case those guests or their family members develop symptoms suggestive of infection during the program, they are obliged to notify the driver or tour leader without delay, who will follow the protocol provided for such situations.
