A passport or some other identification document recognised by the international agreement is required. For some countries an identity card will be enought. Usually foreign visitors do not need a visa to enter Croatia – if you are not sure whether you need or not, visit the Croatian Ministry of Foreign Affairs web page (www.mvp.hr ). If you need a visa, contact the Croatian Embassy in your country for more information about how to obtain it.
There are hospitals and clinics located in all the larger towns and cities, while smaller centers have pharmacies and ER's. Foreign visitors are not obligated to pay for medical services if an agreement on health services was signed between Croatia and the visitors' country of origin. Expenses for health services given to individuals coming from other countries without signed agreement are charged directly to the user, upon price list. If you are not sure whether your country has such agreement with Croatia, make sure to check before departure.
