UPDATED: 6.9.2023.

e-Građani (e-Citizens) is a web application created by the Croatian government to serve Croatian citizens, residents, and businesses. It allows access to government services and performing specific activities online instead of going to physical state institutions in person.

e-Građani makes communication between people, businesses, and the state easier and faster. It was built with security and transparency in mind.

e-Građani’s National Identification and Authentication System – NIAS and credentials

 NIAS, credentials, and security levels

Nacionalni identifikacijski i autentifikacijski sustav – NIAS (National Identification and Authentication System) is responsible for the security of e-Građani and enables access to online services. Essentially, this system is what allows you to log into e-Građani.

You may already easily log into e-Građani with a login you already have. For example, the mobile app for your Croatian bank account may be used to log in to e-Građani.

e-Građani services or accounts have vjerodajnice (credentials) with security levels that can vary between:

  • Low-security level – 1
  • Significant security level – 2
  • High-security level – 3

Some e-Građani services require a higher security level to log in and use them, and some lower. For basic services, level 1 is enough. Services requiring a lot of personal information require level 2 or 3. Only citizens have level 3 access. You can’t use a particular service if your security level is lower than required.

Click here for more details on the security levels.

To summarize, to access e-Građani, you must have an account with a Croatian institution that issues credentials for NIAS. A list of credentials and their security levels is available in Croatian here and in English here.

How to request an account from FINA

If you don’t have credentials, you can request access from FINA free of charge. You can get an account for ePASS (security level 1) by visiting them in person.

To request ePASS, you must have:

  • Identification document (Croatian or foreign ID card or passport)
  • Email address
  • More than 15 years of age
  • Croatian OIB

It is also possible to request mToken from FINA (security level 2) in person at a FINA administrative office.

A list of FINA branches is available here.
