People travel for freedom and independence.
With freedom and independence, you can live your life to the fullest by exploring the world.
However, with the presence of COVID-19, the freedom and independence of travel were put on hold because of border closures and travel restrictions.
Don’t worry. The world is opening up, and if done properly, the freedom and independence of travel can be yours again. No matter where you go, buying COVID insurance is essential to keeping safe while abroad.
COVID Insurance for Croatian Travelers
Croatian travelers can travel to Thailand now because the country has eased its travel restrictions for the convenience of travelers all over the world.
Croatia is considered a low-risk country by Thailand, which means Croatian travelers can visit Thailand without mandatory quarantine.
There are only a few travel documents needed for Croatian citizens to enter Thailand, one of which is proof they have purchased COVID insurance.
This COVID insurance could be called travel, medical, or health insurance with COVID-19 cover.
The purpose of COVID insurance is to ensure a Croatian citizen is protected in the unlikely case they contract COVID while on holidays. Foreign travelers cannot receive free medical care in Thailand, so it’s important to make sure you are not out-of-pocket because of medical expenses.
