Digital Nomad Visa (Residence Permit) in Croatia

The rapidly increasing trend of digital nomads choosing Croatia as their long term destination is not surprising. The quality of life, along with fresh air, clear seas and fantastic weather, as well as the cost of living – still lower than in many other countries of the EU – make it an irresistible option for anyone immersed in the digital nomad lifestyle.

Who qualifies for a digital nomad visa?

If you’re reading this, you probably already consider yourself a digital nomad. Therefore, the text below will provide you with the necessary insight into the current official position of digital nomads in Croatia, taking care to cover all the steps and relevant details regarding the documentation required in order to start working and living from this stunning Mediterranean country.

Who is considered a digital nomad in Croatia? Any third-country national that owns or works for a company not registered in the Republic of Croatia can be defined as one, as well as third-country nationals who don’t perform work or provide services in the Republic of Croatia.

While other residency visas can be extended, the digital nomad permit is valid up to a one-year period and cannot be renewed; however, six months after the expiration date, you are allowed to reapply. Close family members of digital nomads who have been granted a temporary stay in the Republic of Croatia may join them by applying for a different type of visa – the purpose of family reunification visa.

How To Apply

If you’re interested in applying for a digital nomad visa, the online application is available here. The process differs depending on your country of birth. For instance, if from the USA or UK, your procedure will be different than if arriving from the Philippines. You can find whether your country needs a visa to enter Croatia here.

Citizens of countries that need a tourist visa to enter Croatia should apply in one of the Croatian diplomatic missions and consular offices outside Croatia. A list of available diplomatic missions and consular offices in your country can be found here.

Citizens of countries that don’t need a tourist visa to enter Croatia (citizens of the UK, EU countries, the USA, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand) can submit their application at a diplomatic mission or consular posts in Croatia or a nearby administration/police station.

Necessary Documents

All the copies need to be submitted in Croatian or English.

  • Application form 1a
  • Copy of a valid travel document with the validity longer than three months after your visa expires
  • Proof of health insurance covering the Republic of Croatia (travel or private insurance apply, but you must show your health insurance covers the Republic of Croatia)
  • Contract of employment or copy of your own company’s registration proving your employment is not registered in the Republic of Croatia.
  • Proof of financial means — a bank statement showing regular income with a minimum of 193,710.00 kunas (around 31,000 USD, 40,000 CAD, or 26,000 EUR) for 12 months. A third-country national regulating their temporary residence in Croatia as a digital nomad must have funds in the amount of at least 2.5 average monthly net salary amounts for the previous year. 
  • Criminal record check from your country of birth or a country you resided in for more than one year before arriving in the Republic of Croatia authorized by a Croatian notary. You can read more about that here.
  • Your current address in the Republic of Croatia. Or an address of your intended stay (if you’re outside of Croatia).
After Approval

Congrats! Your digital nomad residence permit has been approved. Now you’re just a few steps away from being an official resident of Croatia!

Citizens of countries that need the tourist visa to enter Croatia should contact the diplomatic mission or consular post where they applied in order to obtain the residence permit to enter the Republic of Croatia, or may apply online. However, we suggest contacting the office beforehand

Citizens of countries that don’t need a tourist visa and are already in Croatia, need to register their temporary residence address within 30 days of being granted the stay; otherwise, it will be revoked. If you are entering Croatia after being given a temporary stay, you have to register your address within 3 days. You can do so in your local administration/police station.

When registering the address, you will be needing the following:

Get your biometric residence permit (applies to both countries that need a tourist visa and those that don’t).

Provide photos and biometric data (such as fingerprints) in your local police station and pay the following fees:

For those applying outside of Croatia — fees are paid when applying:

HRK 420.00 (around 65 USD, 85 CAD, 55 EUR) for granting the temporary stay, and

HRK 460.00 (around 75 USD, 90 CAD, 60 EUR) for the visa, or

HRK 310.00 (around 50 USD, 65 CAD, 40 EUR) for the biometric residence card (check with the diplomatic mission/consular post about the possibility of obtaining the card).

For those applying in Croatia — fees are paid after the residence is granted:

HRK 350.00 (around 55 USD, 70 CAD, 45 EUR) for granting a temporary stay, and

HRK 70.00 (around 11 USD, 14 CAD, 9 EUR) for administrative fees for the issuance of the biometric residence permit and

HRK 240.00 (around 40 USD, 50 CAD, 30 EUR) for the biometric residence card.

After receiving your digital nomad residence permit, take the time to consider where you’ll be spending your time in Croatia. If you’re looking for a comfortable and memorable place to stay while exploring the mesmerizing Croatian seashore – the luxury of Marvie Hotel & Health might be the best option for you!
