Easier visa issuance for business partners and foreign investors to Croatia

Business partners or future investors can easily obtain visa with a letter of reference by the CEA president

The Directorate General for EU and international law and consular affairs of the Ministry of Foreign and European affairs organised a meeting on 10th September 2013 in order to inform the business community about new opportunities of easier visa issuing for business people with a letter of recommendation by the president of the Croatian Employers’ Association, the Croatian Chamber of Economy, the Croatian Chamber of Trades and Craft or the Croatian exporters.

With such a letter, multiply-entry visa can be obtained for one year and, the next time one submits a request for a multiply-entry visa for a period of five years. Such letter of recommendation should contain the following information: description of the circumstances of business partner’s travel, his/her importance for the Croatian business community, his/her personal data and the data on the company s/he is visiting in Croatia.
The letter of recommendation should be submitted either directly to the Diplomatic&Consular Representative Office, where a foreign partner submits a visa application, or to the MFA Service for Visa issuance vize@mvep.hr.
Entry permit can be required and obtained in any of the Croatian Diplomatic&Consular offices in the world on client’s request. New procedure has been in force since 11th September 2013.
