Online payment of tourist tax for vessel owners or users

Tourist tax for vessel owners

With the goal of digitalization of the tourist tax payment, in July 2020 Croatian National Tourist Board has developed a multilingual portal nautika.evisitor.hr which gives nautical tourists an option of online payment.  Since 2021 tourist tax is only payable through an online portal, as opposed to previous years when it was exclusively paid in the Harbor Masters' offices.

 

The portal is available in English, German, Italian and Croatian and guides users through a simple process of registration and payment of the tourist tax. Moreover, the portal accepts payments by all the most popular credit card brands and after the successfull transaction, tourist will receive a confirmation on his/her e-mail address, and it should be kept during the entire stay on the vessel.

 

 We remind that, in accordance with the Tourist Tax Law, nautical tourists can pay their tourist tax either by the vessel length or per person per day (i.e. per overnight stay) in cases when such option would be cheaper, for example during a shorter stay in a destination.

 

 In order to make this information easily accessible to nautical tourists, the Croatian National Tourist Board has created a leaflet in nine different languages. Leaflet contains short instructions and as well additional information for the usage of QR code which links user to the webpage.
