Customs regulations

Croatian currency is Kuna (1 Kn = 100 Lipa). Foreign currencies can be exchanged in exchange offices, banks, post-offices, tourist agencies and in the majority of hotel reception desks and auto-camps. Since Croatia is part of European Union from 01.07.2013, there are no limitations for EU citizens when traveling to Croatia. Non EU citizens can also freely carry their foreign currency in and out of the country (up to 10.000 €), though value of domestic currency can not exceed 15,000 Kuna. They also should always report valuable technology items at the customs office. Non EUcitizens can get tax refund for the goods bought in the country, if the value of the goods exceede 500 Kuna, but they need to have their "tax free" form validated upon leaving the country.
