In Croatia, there are no official policies implemented with regard to nationals of particular countries, as every application is examined individually and on a case-by-case basis. However, in 2021 Croatia accepted evacuated Afghan nationals and their family members and granted them international protection. A total of 41 Afghan citizens were admitted from August to December 2021, three of whom left the Republic of Croatia to reunite with their families, while the rest were granted asylum.[1] Out of that total number, 16 were children.[2]
