"Arrival of migrants from the Republic of Serbia is still expected and 197,376 migrants have entered the Republic of Croatia since the beginning of migrant crisis," the statement reads.
The ministry added that 196 migrants had entered the country between midnight and 9 p.m. (19:00 GMT) on Sunday.
Europe has been beset by an enormous refugee crisis, with hundreds of thousands of undocumented migrants fleeing to Europe to escape violence and poverty in their home countries. Many refugees use Croatia as a transit route to enter the bloc before traveling to more prosperous Western EU states, where they prefer to apply for asylum.
Over 710,000 migrants arrived in the European Union during the first nine months of 2015, according to the EU border agency Frontex.
