Croatia recognizes certificates for operating vessels by nine more countries
Alongside Hungary and Slovakia, with which an agreement on the mutual recognition of certificates was signed earlier, boaters from Austria, Italy, Germany, Slovenia, the Czech Republic, Poland, Sweden, Norway and Canada can now sail in Croatian waters if they possess one of the 35 authorized certificates issued by their countries. The ministry added that the recognized certificates or diplomas for operating boats and yachts were in accordance with Croatian regulations. This is expected to facilitate vessel renting in Croatia without bringing navigation safety into question.
