MOSCOW, April 1 (Itar-Tass) – Croatia introduces the visa regime for Russian citizens as of Monday, April 1, as part of the country’s preparations for the accession in the European Union. Croatian Ambassador in Russia Igor Pokaz stated that the Russian citizens will have no problems with the visas in the country.
“I raised this issue in Zagreb during a meeting with the foreign minister, and the minister said that Croatia will take a flexible approach in issuing visas to the Russian citizens,” the ambassador said at a meeting with Russian Minister of Emergency Situations Vladimir Puchkov at the middle of March.
A new Croatian consulate opens in Moscow not far from the Croatian Embassy in Russia, Pokaz said. “As many as 15 new employees will arrive from Croatia to work in the Consulate in Moscow so that Russian citizens will not have any problems with visas,” the ambassador noted.
He noted that the Schengen visa is already in effect in Croatia.
“Russian citizens will be able to receive multiple entry visas, and special benefits will be introduced for businesspeople,” Pokaz remarked.
Croatia is to accede to the European Union officially on July 1, 2013 and now introduces the visa regime with the countries, which do not have the visa-free regime with the European Union.
