How is it that EU nationals have access to the e-Citizens digital platform of the Republic of Croatia?
Since 2016, at the EU level, the so-called eIDAS Regulation has been in force, aimed at removing obstacles to the cross-border use of means to confirm the electronic identity of citizens of member states. The Regulation seeks, inter alia, to enable European citizens to use e-services in a safe manner by using their national credentials, thus bringing Europe closer to the goal of a digital single market. In 2017, Croatia enabled cross-border authentication, which provided for the use of Croatian public e-services by foreigners. The system is constantly being upgraded with new services available to citizens of the European Union.
