SAILING IN THE REPUBLIC OF CROATIA
The commander of a vessel entering the territorial waters of the Republic of Croatia by sea must carry out border control formalities, undergo border control, certify the list of crew and passengers on board at the harbourmaster’s office or branch office; pay the prescribed fees for the safety of navigation and sea protection against pollution; pay the tourist tax and register the stay of foreign nationals on board in accordance with special regulations.
The commander of a vessel, entering Croatia by land or which has been moored in the harbour or other approved location in the Republic of Croatia, must, prior to setting out to sea, pay the prescribed fees for safety of navigation and sea protection against pollution, pay a tourist tax and register the stay of foreign nationals on the boat in accordance with special regulations.
From 1 January 2014 foreign vessels, as well as vessels bearing the Croatian flag, are obliged to pay fees for the safety of navigation and protection from pollution. The fees depend on the length of the vessel and engine power. They are payable for the calendar year regardless of the period of navigation in the territorial sea and internal waters of the Republic of Croatia.
Owners or users of vessels and all persons which stay overnight on a boat which is more than 5 m in length and used for holidays, recreation or sailing are required to pay a flat rate sojourn tax.
The sojourn tax must be paid in the harbourmaster’s office (or its branch office) before the departure of the boat to sea, as a flat rate for residence periods of 8, 15, 30 or 90 days, or 1 year.
