April 27, 2021 - COVID-19 testing at Split Airport is now available for passengers traveling to or from Split Airport. 

As of Monday, the Split-Dalmatia County Public Health Teaching Institute enables all passengers to be tested for SARS-CoV-2 near the passenger terminal of Split Airport.

SARS-CoV-2 testing will take place right next to the state road D409, near the passenger terminal of Split Airport. Access to the location is possible on foot and by car.

Testing for SARS-CoV-2 is made possible by using two methods, depending on the needs of the passengers and depending on the type of test required to travel to a particular country.

The result of a rapid antigen test for SARS-CoV-2 is ready within 30 minutes. The test costs HRK 200.00, while translating the result to English will cost an extra HRK 250.00.

The SARS-CoV-2 PCR test is ready within 24 hours and costs HRK 400.00. Should you need the result in English, the total cost is HRK 450.00 total. The testing center explained that any tests taken on Sunday would be delivered to the passenger within 36 hours.

Passengers should bring an identity document with them and are obliged to check the travel conditions and restrictions for the country they are traveling to and the type of test they need.

Payment is possible by cash, debit, or credit card. Pre-registration by phone or e-mail is not required.

The number of those tested at Split Airport will increase in the coming weeks, especially when the airlines inform passengers about this possibility. The Airport and the Institute of Public Health want to facilitate and speed up the process of testing tourists in this way.

Passengers will be informed about the possibility of being tested at the airport by their airlines in the coming days. Before or after the flight, those who travel abroad or come to Croatia can perform a quick antigen test or PCR test without notice. They bear the cost themselves, and if we add testing in another country, it is not cheap.

"We expect that all passengers who will need testing will be informed in time of what tests they need to enter their home country," explained the Deputy Director of Split Airport Pero Bilas.

For the second summer, Croatia has been fighting for every guest. In a pandemic, safety is paramount.

"Those who come, if they are positive, will have to go to isolation where they organized for accommodation, and those who leave will, of course, be offered quarantine if they have no other options for isolation," explained Željka Karin, director of NZJZ SDŽ.

The new testing center at Split Airport will work from:

Monday to Friday from 08:00 to 16:00,

on Saturdays from 07:00 to 17:00,

on Sundays from 08:00 to 16:00.
