COVID-19: Traveling to the Czech Republic

As from July 12, 2021, Canada is considered as a country with a low risk of COVID-19 transmission (green country). Canadian citizens may enter the Czech Republic for any reason (return to home, tourism, travel to work or for study, family visit, etc.)

However, Canadian citizens traveling from Canada or another green country to the Czech Republic are obliged:

           AND

  • to undergo an antigen test 48 hours or less or a RT-PCR test 72 hours or less prior to departure to the Czech Republic

           OR

  • to undergo an antigen or RT-PCR test within 5 days from the entry to the Czech Republic

 

There are no direct flights between Canada and the Czech Republic. Please check first with transit countries whether you will be allowed to travel to the Czech Republic and back to Canada.

Please check also in advance with your airlines and transit countries for their sanitary regulations (testing for COVID-19, vaccination, etc.)

Children under 6 years of age do not require presenting a test.

The provincial vaccination certificates from Canada are not recognised by the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic. There is a list of recognised certificates.

There is no obligation of self-isolation after the arrival to the Czech Republic from Canada.

The same set of rules applies to third country citizens with permanent residence or long-term residence (at least one year) in Canada.

Canadian passport holders are not required to obtain visas to enter the Czech Republic for a short-term non-profit stay (up to 90 days in any 180-day period within the Schengen area).

VISA SERVICES
The Embassy of the Czech Republic in Ottawa has resumed full visa services. For the visa requirements, please consult the chapter Visa and Consular Services  on our website.
