All the info you need

Accreditations, travel info, tranportation & accommodation

Dont worry about anything – as a tourist friendly country, travelling to Croatia is definition of not having hassle.

Citizens of the EU, the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Israel, Ireland, Singapore and the UK do not need a visa for stays of up to 90 days. South Africans must apply for a 90-day visa in Pretoria. Contact any Croatian embassy, consulate or travel agency abroad for information. Your passport must be valid for at least another three months after the planned departure from Croatia, as well as issued within the previous ten years. (Note that you’re only allowed to stay in Croatia for a total of 90 days in a 180-day period, so leaving the country just to get a stamp and return isn’t a legal option.)

Citizens of the EU countries and the UK can enter Croatia with only their ID card.

Good manners







Generally not required for stays of up to 90 days


Tap water is potable in all parts of Croatia.

Weights and measures

Croatia uses the metric system.

The purpose of accreditation is to define the roles and responsibilities of the participants during the European Games and to provide them with the facilities necessary to successfully perform their duties/carry out their sport, as well as to ensure the general security of the participants moving around the European Games Venues. The Accreditation Card is the official document jointly issued by EUSA and the EUG 2016. The Accreditation Card will be issued once the accreditation procedures have been completed.
