From Monday, November 9, 2020, a new protective measure of the Ministry of Health will be effective, which regulates the entry into the Czech Republic. Almost all European countries will be marked at least orange at the so-called travel traffic light. The new measure responds to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and coordination at EU level. The measures and restrictions apply both to Czech citizens returning to the Czech Republic and to all foreigners.
ATTENTION: For the period of validity of the crisis measure that restricts the free movement in the territory of the Czech Republic, regardless of the above conditions, it is possible to arrive in the Czech Republic only in strictly necessary cases, even from green countries. All persons entering the Czech Republic must comply with the rules on restrictions on free movement.
The list of countries with a low risk of infection will be regularly updated on the basis of established criteria according to a mechanism for assessing the epidemiological situation of individual EU Member States so that the travel traffic light system is unified across the EU. Countries will be divided into three categories: green, orange and red.
Passengers from these countries (both foreigners and Czech citizens) can arrive without having to fill in an arrival form and undergo a PCR test or quarantine. List of countries with a low risk of COVID-19 contagion can be found here (Czech only).
Passengers from these countries can arrive without having to fill in an arrival form. Before entering a workplace or educational institution in the Czech Republic, foreigners who come to the Czech Republic for work or study will have to submit a negative PCR test. Applies to foreigners only.
Passengers from these countries (both foreigners and Czech citizens) must fill in the Arrival Form and either undergo a PCR test within 5 days of entering the Czech Republic or provide a negative PCR test result not older than 72 hours.
With regard to third-country citizens (ie countries outside the EU+), in accordance with the coordinated EU procedure, the ban on entry into the territory of the Czech Republic with certain exceptions continues to apply.
