UK lifts visa regime with Croatia

After more than 6 years the United Kingdom visa regime for Croatia will be lifted on 22 March 2006, the embassy in Zagreb announced on March 1.

According to the decision, tourist, business and family visits for up to six months will no longer require a visa. Transit visas are abolished also and visas are not required for Croats who want to study for up to six months in the United Kingdom. Croats who intend to stay in the United Kingdom for a period of more than six months a visa will be required.

As with other non-EU citizens, Croatian citizens will be subject to immigration control on entering the UK and will have to satisfy the immigration authorities on entry that their visa complies with UK immigration law.

The UK has recently updated its visa nationals list.
