Secretary Mayorkas Announces Designation of Croatia as a New Participant in the Visa Waiver Program

By December 1, 2021, the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) will be updated to allow citizens and nationals of Croatia to apply to travel to the United States for tourism or business for up to 90 days without obtaining a U.S. visa.  Croatia’s designation as a participant in the VWP is an important step toward further strengthening long-standing economic and security cooperation between the United States and Croatia.    

“Today’s designation of Croatia as a new participant in the Visa Waiver Program is an important recognition of our countries’ shared economic and security interests,” said Secretary Alejandro N. Mayorkas.  “I congratulate Croatia for becoming the 40th member of the VWP after having met strict requirements, and I look forward to our continued close cooperation on key priorities.”

In a direct statement to ACAP, the Ambassador Pjer  Simunovic, “More Croatian citizens will be traveling to America to visit this great country, more businesses, more families getting together more frequently. This is also a nice measure of mutual trust and friendship, many thanks to the US Administration. A great work done on our side, with a lot of support from the State Department and the Homeland Security.”
