CRISIS MEASURE: Only essential travel to the Czech Republic possible

Due to the critical epidemiological situation, the Czech Republic has instituted a crisis measure banning free movement of persons on the territory of the Czech Republic, effective October 22.

The following information is general. Ireland is still on the Czech list of so-called green countries, and after arriving in the Czech Republic it is not necessary to take neither test nor to self-quarantine.

Only essential travel to the Czech Republic is allowed.

Travel for the purpose of tourism or visit of friends is not allowed. This will concern primarily persons from the so-called green countries who up until now were allowed to enter without restrictions. This has changed now and essential travel requirement concerns persons from the so-called green countries as well.

Restrictions include for example closure of hotels and other accommodation facilities (for touristic purpose) or limiting gathering in public to two persons only (unless from the same household).

These measures do not affect cross-border workers.

We remind everybody arriving to the Czech Republic to become familiar with the arrival quarantine measures. Persons arriving from other than the so-called green countries must fill out an arrival form prior to the travel and get tested for covid-19 immediately after arrival – make sure to follow guidelines given here.

This restriction is effective until November 3 with the possibility of extension.
