European Union citizens and residents can easily travel to the Czech Republic for a non-essential reason! The Czech Government has approved the release of anti-epidemic measures that significantly simplify planning trips to the Czech Republic. Non-European travellers can still visit the Czech Republic for medical treatment!

As of August 2021 in accordance with the full vaccination certificate coming into effect, anti-epidemic measures are eased for vaccinated EU citizens and for vaccinated third-country citizens, under the condition that the EU/third country citizen has been vaccinated by a vaccine approved by European Medicine Agency (EMA).

Vaccinated persons must be holders of a certificate on completed vaccination course against COVID-19.

Vaccinated persons travelling from EU/third countries in accordance with the European Union regulation on EU digital COVID certificates may enter the Czech Republic. These persons can newly travel to the Czech Republic.
