The Croatian government sustained its victim protection efforts in , although, as a policy matter, the Croatian government did not identify children in prostitution as trafficking victims. The government funded two NGO trafficking shelters, one for adults and one for women and children; the government also provided three reception centers to provide victims with care before they could be transported to the shelters. Foreign victims were offered the same standard of care as domestic victims, including medical care, education, legal assistance, psychological care, and assistance finding employment.
Adult victims were allowed to leave shelters at will and without chaperones. In , the government identified 11 victims of trafficking, of whom nine were sex trafficking victims, one was a labor trafficking victim, and one was exploited for both labor and sex. In , twelve victims were identified. NGOs and other entities did not identify any victims of trafficking.

The government continued employing a national referral mechanism to identify and care for victims, and began deploying mobile teams with NGO participation to identify and refer trafficking victims for assistance. The Croatian government has designated a trained social worker in each of Croatia's 21 counties to assist trafficking victims. The Croatian government did not automatically identify children in prostitution as trafficking victims. The Croatian government extended the term of the "reflection period" granted to suspected victims of trafficking from 30 days to 60 days for adults and 90 days for children.
The government provided legal alternatives to removal for victims of trafficking facing hardship or retribution at home through its temporary residency permits for victims — initially valid from six months to one year, and subject to extension by the government based on a subsequent needs assessment. There is no legal limit to the amount of time a trafficking victim can spend in the shelter. The government of Croatia encouraged victims to assist in the prosecution of trafficking offenders by providing victims with free legal aid. Eight victims testified against their offenders during the reporting period.
An NGO study claimed that the government inadequately protected trafficking victims' rights when they required the victims to testify repeatedly during trial. The Croatian government sustained its efforts to prevent trafficking in persons during the year.
