HEALTH INSURANCE

All exchange students must have health insurance during their stay in Croatia.

  1. All EU/EAA students need to bring their European health insurance card  valid during the entire period spent in Croatia.
  2. All non-EU/EAA exchange students are required to take out a travel medical insurance that is valid during the entire period spent in Croatia. The ensured cover must be at least 30,000 EUR and include repatriation for medical reasons, urgent medical care and/or emergency treatment in a hospital.  The student will need to submit a proof of medical insurance upon arrival to Zagreb, Croatia when applying for the first temporary permit.
  3. Students coming from Bosnia and Hercegovina, Montenegro and Serbia that have health insurance with their national health insurance provider in the home country may take out a proof of health insurance from the home country – so-called “bolesnički list” – and exchange it for insurance policy from the Croatian national health insurance provider. Upon arrival to Zagreb students will report to the Croatian Health Insurance Fund (Hrvatski zavod za zdrastveno osiguranje – HZZO) and submit the so-called “bolesnički list” at the address: Branimirova 37, Odjel za međunarodnu suradnju / Department for international cooperation. The HZZO will issue a document that enables exchange students to use the health services within the Croatian health system. The document is issued without additional charges.

VISA AND RESIDENCE PERMIT

EU/EEA citizens can enter Croatia with just a valid ID card (or passport) and then need to register at the Central Police Station if staying for more than 3 months (90 days) to regulate the residence permit.

Citizens of the USA, Australia, Canada, etc. (for full list see Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs) can enter Croatia with a valid passport and then apply for the residence permit in Zagreb. Check with the Croatian embassy in your country of residence which documentation you will need for your application in Zagreb and make sure you take it along when coming to Zagreb.

NON-EU/EEA citizens coming from a country that has a visa-regime with the Republic Croatia need to apply for a visa via the Croatian embassy in their home country before departing for Croatia.

The list of countries whose nationals need a visa to enter Croatia can be found at the pages of the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs.
