Welcome! We’re here to help.

Expat in Croatia is a different kind of company, so this is a different kind of contact page.

If this is the first time you are landing on our site, please read our About Us page to understand what we do.

For many years when EIC was only a blog, we offered endless free advice to our audience and were happy to do it.

Now, we are a formal company with a team of 9 salaried people spread across Croatia. It takes thousands of hours each year to research and produce new content, maintain and update that content, customize that content for social media, serve our audience, guide our clients plus do all the other behind the scenes tasks that keep all the plates spinning. (And, we have ZERO ads on this site).

Since 2013, our audience has grown from hundreds to tens of thousands. It is simply not feasible for us to provide personalized, free advice on every person’s situation any longer, despite how much we would like to. But that does not mean you cannot get your question answered for free.

Below, we’ve outlined how you can get help, both free and paid, and how to contact us.

If you’re a member of the media, then please contact us here.
