Charter licenseJune 2017

Is a charter license required?
Yes, all non-EU yachts must purchase a charter license. A license is also required if the charter starts outside Croatia in an EU or non-EU country and cruises in Croatian waters. Yachts flagged Isle of Man, Gibraltar and the Channel Islands do not need a charter license since the flags are now deemed to be EU.
For how long is it valid?

A license is valid for one calendar year.  The number of licenses issued is no longer restricted but the Croatian Ministry of Maritime Affairs has advised it might temporarily suspend issuance for up to 3 months in order to avoid market overload.
Where can I purchase a license?
Through a licensed ship agent.

Are there any further requirements?
Yes, the technical documentation of the yacht must be inspected.  The inspection must be organized through your ship agent after your arrival.
