The latest Croatia Holiday and Home Newsletter has some interesting information in it. The Croatian government have apparently passed new laws to speed up the process of foreign property buyers receiving permission to own a property as foreigners. At the moment it can take up to three years. It appears that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs are sending back all the 5600 applications, currently log jammed in the system, to The Ministry of Justice, who plan to start a new department within the ministry to deal with those applications some time in September. We’ll have to see if the new system works better than the old one.

And remember, if you don't want to join the property buyers queue, you can always set up a Croatian company to purchase the property but you need to be aware of the complications that come with that option.
