Croatia is negotiating to became part of the EU. EU citizens can freely enter Croatia, but please do not forget your passport as there is still border control between EU and Croatia, and between Croatia and other neighbouring countries. At this moment citizens of Slovenia, Italy and Hungary can enter Croatia with personal ID card only, but please inform yourself before travel!
Citizens of most other countries can enter Croatia without visa too, but please check this with your ministry of foreign affairs or with nearest Croatian embassy. There are no possibilities to get a visa at a Croatian border. You can also check the site of the croatian ministry of foreign affairs for the visa information.
For known members from the countries for which visas are necessary we will gladly send official invitations provided that they inform us about this in time. If you need visa the deadline for the registration is June 1st. In that way we will have enough time to send you an official invitation.
