Local Assistance

Professional assistant Lucija Perić of Expat in Croatia

If you’re looking for personalized expert assistance with living in Croatia, our local assistant Lucija Perić can help you with anything you might need on the ground in Croatia.

Born and raised near Split, Lucija has spent most of her life in Zagreb, as well as Germany and Serbia. She has been helping foreigners navigate the Croatian system and get settled in the Split area since 2018.

From her time living abroad, she knows how hard it can be setting up life in a new country, or even after returning to one’s home country after living abroad.

Lucija’s clients benefit from her extensive experience with Croatian bureaucracy (as well as bureaucracies abroad) and knowledge of how to get things done in this country where too often it feels like things can never been done. Whether it’s dealing with the police or finding a place to live that meets your needs, Lucija is fully dedicated to understanding your needs, informing you of all possibilities and risks, providing detailed updates throughout the process and eliminating as much stress as possible.
