Welcome to Expat in Croatia Services!

We are excited to share our dedicated Services section with you. Many of these services are shared within our vast database of blog posts as well, but on this page we’ve listed all the ways we can help make your life in Croatia easier – all in one place.

Expat in Croatia is dedicated to giving back and supporting the Croatian community. In keeping with this objective, most of these services support Croatian-owned small businesses. We have carefully vetted a network of English-speaking Croatian professionals around the country skilled in law, real estate, translation, accounting and tax.

If you don’t know what you need, try scheduling a private consulting session with Sara. If you need help with something small like calling a ministry or researching something, try our Research Anything You Wish service.

We are always happy to help make your life in Croatia easier. 🙂

Local Assistance

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

Obtain Croatian birth certificates

If you plan to apply for citizenship based on descent, you'll need the birth certificate of your ancestor. Older records are not digitized and can be much harder to find. Having someone on the ground in Croatia to research your ancestor will give you the best chance of finding the birth certificates you need.

Application for temporary residence in Croatia

There are many paths to temporary residence in Croatia. We can help you figure out the right path for you. Then, we can connect you with a vetted lawyer who can handle the entire process on your behalf.

Croatian tax liability evaluation

Croatia's income tax system is residence-based. That means that anyone residing in Croatia for more than 183 days is obligated to report and potentially pay income tax on their worldwide income. However, it's not that simple. We can connect you to a vetted tax advisor who can evaluate your liability to ensure there are no ugly surprises.

Application for Croatian Citizenship (based on descent)

If you have a Croatian ancestor, then you may qualify to apply for Croatian citizenship based on Article 11 of the Citizenship Act. We can help validate your claim as well as connect you to a vetted expert who can prepare your application from beginning to end.

Registration for Croatian Citizenship (for people with Croatian parents)

If you were born to a Croatian citizen then you may qualify to register for Croatian citizenship based on Article 5 of the Citizenship Act. We can help validate your claim as well as connect you to a vetted expert who can prepare your application from beginning to end.

Research anything you wish

Research is our forte. If you need to find something out, we can find it out for you - quickly with as much detail as humanly possible.
