As of 5 February 2021 new rules prior to departure for the Czech Republic

This change has been principally brought about in the reaction to the new and more infectious mutation of coronavirus and to the coordination at the EU level in this regard. The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control rates in its report the current risk of community transmission within the whole Europe as very high and therefore calls for tightening travel measures, including limitation of non-essential journeys.

There is a new category of so-called dark red (high-risk) countries with the strictest epidemiologic measures applicable to journeys from this category including citizens of non-EU member states. This means that there is the obligation to submit a first PCR test done 48 hours or less prior to the entry, followed by a second PCR test undergone in the Czech Republic at the earliest the 5th day from the entry. The self-isolation is obligatory until the second negative test result is submitted.

There is the obligation to fill in the electronic Public Health Passenger Locator Form in case of journeys from all these categories of countries. The form will be checked along with the test at the entry to the Czech Republic. 

This new measure is applicable as of 5 February 2021. More information is found at the website of the List of countries according to the level of risk – Aktuální informace o COVID-19 (mzcr.cz)
