Short-stay visa (visa C)

What

Visa for one, two or multiple entries for the purpose of transit through or intended stay in the territory of the Republic of Croatia is issued for up to 90 days in each 180-day period. In the event of transit, the length of approved stay corresponds to the time required for transit. A multiple-entry short-stay visa is issued with a validity of 6 months to 5 years, if the migrant can prove the following: the need, or legitimate intention, to travel often and/or regularly, especially for family reasons; his honesty and reliability by legally using previous visas, by the financial situation in his country of origin and by his real intention to leave the territory of Croatia before the visa he is applying for expires. Term of validity of a short-term visa includes an additional period of 15 days (the additional period will not be approved if reasons of public policy so require). Issuing a visa doesn’t guarantee that the migrant will be allowed to enter Croatia.
