On September 28, 2021, the US government designated Croatia as a new participant in the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). This development will allow Croatian citizens to be eligible to use the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) program, starting no later than December 1, 2021. ESTA allows citizens from certain countries to visit the US for business or tourism for up to 90 days without a regular U.S. visa in their passport.
Croatia is the 40th member country of the VWP that marks a strengthening of the long-standing economic and security relationship between the U.S. and Croatia. Member nations of the VWP must meet strict ongoing requirements related to counterterrorism, law enforcement, immigration enforcement, document security, and border management.
