Travel To Croatia Still Not So Simple From Hungary
Contrary to the May 5 announcement by Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó, travel by Hungarians to Croatia requires more than a vaccination card, website 444 reports.

Details published by the consular service reveal that the plastic vaccination card is not enough to enter Croatia, as the paper-based vaccination certificate is needed too, showing both vaccination dates. Moreover, visitors can only enter Croatia 14 days after receiving the second vaccine.

In addition, only minors under the age of seven are exempt from testing and quarantine obligations if they travel in the company of their parents or other adults who have vaccination certificates.

The consular service did not provide information about children over seven years of age.

Visitors are also required to state upon entry to Croatia the duration of their stay, as well as the location and exact address of their accommodation.

Once in Croatia, the same services are available to holders of Hungarian immunity certificates as to those with the Croatian one.

As it is a mutual agreement, it is likely that the Croatian vaccination card is also accepted in Hungary, but no official information has been published yet in that regard.
