Schengen area expands to another resort country

Schengen area expands with one more resort country

Another resort country expects to become part of the Schengen area in the foreseeable future. We are talking about Croatia, which plans to fully enter the borders of the “borderless” Schengen from January 1, 2023. This was stated by Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic.

“Croatia has fulfilled all the necessary requirements in order to become part of the Schengen area. We are ready to provide additional clarifications on this matter to everyone who wants it, so that the country can join the Schengen area on January 1, 2023,” the Croatian Prime Minister said. According to him, the committee of the European Parliament is expected to give a positive opinion on this matter in the coming weeks. True, this will require “an assessment of the country's readiness for such criteria as protecting the Croatian border, as well as managing the migration situation.” “The final decision in this regard remains with the Justice and Home Affairs Council of the European Union,” added Mr. Plenkovic.

Note that Croatia's hope to enter the Schengen area is officially supported by the authorities of the “core” EU countries . At the very least, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has said he supports Schengen membership for Croatia – as well as the rest of the Balkan candidates – Bulgaria and Romania. Mr. Plenkovic also expressed his support to the latter countries “on the way to joining the Schengen area”.
