The legislative changes concern:

  • “Posted workers”—European Economic Area (EEA) employers must designate a person who will keep certain documents at the place where the posted workers will work (or at another specifically indicated place in Croatia). These documents must be retained for a period of five years after the posting ends.
  • Intra-corporate transfers—“Work and stay permit” requirements include measures concerning work and stay permits issued to third-country nationals who are temporarily transferred by their third-country employers to a Croatian company, branch office or a representative office belonging to the same group of companies as their foreign employer.
  • Seasonal workers—There are new conditions for the entry and stay of third-country nationals who are identified as “seasonal workers” in Croatia.
