Croatia to increase upper tourist tax rate by one kuna

ZAGREB, 4.8.2017.

The government on Friday decided to increase some rates of the tourist residence tax in 2018, and the rates will range between HRK 2.5 to 8.

The increase refers to the "A class" during high season with the current seven-kuna residence tax (Sojourn Tax) per person per night  going up by one kuna to HRK 8.

Presenting the new regulation, Tourism Ministry State Secretary Frano Matusic said that for the sake of comparison Croatia still had the lowest rates. For instance, in Italy this tax is between 1.2 to 8 euros.

In Croatia, currently holidaymakers over 18 have to pay a ‘Sojourn Tax’ which ranges from 2 to 7 kuna per person, per night depending on the category of the accommodation and season.
There is a 50% discount for those aged between 12 and 18. Children under 12 are exempt from the tax.
