through a neighbouring country. During transit
, the shortest traffic routes should be used without undue delay. It is necessary to leave Croatia as soon as possible and no longer than 12 hours from the time of entry. After approving entry, the border police will check whether transit
travellers have left Croatian territory within 12 hours. As a rule, the transit
