A new series on TCN, starting on February 20, 2016, helping you navigate through the bureaucracy of this beautiful country. How to Croatia, which will soon have its own section on TCN, is a practical guide for all you need to know to deal with the basics of life in Croatia. We start with Vivian Grisogono's excellent guide on How to get an OIB personal identification number.
