Croatia becomes first EU country to invite Americans defying EU travel ban

Unlike other EU countries, Croatia opened its borders for US citizens too. 

Croatia becomes the first European Union(EU) country to invite American tourists, defying one of the biggest EU travel bans. Unlike other EU countries, Croatia opened its borders for US citizens too. 

The announcement was made by the Croatian Ministry of Interior on Friday. Apparently, the EU had put a ban on American citizens from visiting in late June given the COVID-19 condition in the US. The union had said that it would reopen its borders for only 15 countries from July 1 and the US did not make it to the list.

The US embassy in Croatia has said that the country is now open to all foreign nationals, including US citizens, for business, tourism, or any personal reasons. But to enter Croatia, tourists will have to give relevant proof.
