PLAN YOUR JOURNEY: Travelling to the Czech Republic for medical treatment is allowed

Life goes back to normal and travel restrictions are eased. Visa-free citizens and 90 days visa-free visitors from non-European countries who want to travel to the Czech Republic for medical treatment are legally permitted to travel with a negative PCR or ANTIGEN test depending on the departing country. Most of the non-European countries belong to the Dark Red list (for example the United States or Canada) but there are few exceptions that belong to the Green countries (such as Australia or New Zealand).

What do you need to know?

Green Countries – Low risk:

Travelers can come to the Czech Republic from these countries without any restrictions. Countries that are not members of the EU or the Schengen area and are not explicitly listed in another category (Australia, South Korea, New Zealand, Singapore, Thailand – those are green) are classified as "dark red".

Orange countries – Medium risk:

Before travelling to the Czech Republic, foreigners travelling from these countries must fill in an arrival form and undergo an antigen or PCR test, taken no more than 24 hours (antigen) or 72 hours (PCR) before the beginning of the trip and have a hard copy of the result confirmation. It is also mandatory to wear an FFP2 (KN95, N95, P2, DS) respirator everywhere outside the home for 14 days after arrival.

Red countries – High risk:

Before travelling to the Czech Republic, foreigners travelling from these countries must fill in an arrival form and undergo an antigen or PCR test, taken no more than 24 hours (antigen) or 72 hours (PCR) before the beginning of the trip and have a hard copy of the result confirmation. Thereafter, they must undergo a second PCR test (antigen is not sufficient) taken in the Czech Republic, no later than 5 days after arrival. Self-isolation is required until confirmation of a negative test result. It is also mandatory to wear an FFP2 (KN95, N95, P2, DS) respirator everywhere outside the home for 14 days after arrival.

Dark Red countries – Very high risk:

Before travelling to the Czech Republic, foreigners travelling from these countries must fill in an arrival form and undergo a PCR test (antigen is not sufficient), taken no more than 72 hours before the beginning of the trip and have a hard copy of the result confirmation. Thereafter, they must submit a second PCR test (antigen is not sufficient) taken in the Czech Republic, which can be done no earlier than the 5th day and no later than the 14th day after entry. Self-isolation is required until confirmation of a negative test result. It is also mandatory to wear an FFP2 (KN95, N95, P2, DS) respirator everywhere outside the home for 14 days after arrival.

Travelling from non-European countries: Dark Red countries:

European Union including the Czech Republic is welcoming back travelers from non-European countries. The condition to enter the country is to provide proof of a negative PCR test taken no more than 72 hours prior to departure and to fill in an arrival form. All airlines require to show the negative PCR test result before boarding. Thereafter, they must submit a second PCR test (antigen is not sufficient) taken in the Czech Republic, which can be done no earlier than the 5th day and no later than the 14th day after entry. Self-isolation is required until confirmation of a negative test result. It is also mandatory to wear an FFP2 (KN95, N95, P2, DS) respirator everywhere outside the home for 14 days after arrival.

12 hours visit without PCR or antigen test or Passenger locator form:

Travelers who enter the Czech Republic for 12 hours visit only are not required to present a negative PCR/antigen test or Passenger Locator Form, however, an invitation letter from a medical treatment provider must be presented.

Travelers are allowed to visit the clinic while self-isolating

All travelers are allowed to visit the clinic for scheduled appointments or do the grocery shopping during the self-isolation period. Even though all shops and restaurants have remained close to dine-in, there is an option to get food delivery from the finest Czech restaurants and Cafes as well as from take-away shops.

Most of the restaurants provide very attractive deals. All visitors can enjoy themselves at the hotel restaurants that are still open for their guests.

All airlines provide all details and updates online. Ryanair Airlines have renewed the flight connection between London and Prague. KLM, Lufthansa, or United Airlines operate regular flights between the USA and Europe.

You also can find well-arranged travel information on this matter on the official website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic.
