Travelling to the Czech Republic from Albania

Since September 6, 2021, Albania belongs to very high risk countries (dark red).

As of December 27th, 2021, the rules for entry into the Czech Republic will be tightened for foreign nationals. -  the MoH Protective Measure (PDF, 133 KB)

Foreign nationals (who are entitled to enter) travelling to the Czech Republic will have to present a negative PCR test result before the travel and fill in the Passener Locator Form

This obligation applies also to vaccinated persons and persons who recovered from COVID-19 in the last six months. It applies to travels from all countries regardless of the level of risk of the COVID-19 transmission.

Persons who are not vaccinated or who did not recover from COVID-19 in the last six months, have to undergo a PCR test between 5th and 7th day after arrival. This requirement does not apply to persons vaccinated with the COVID booster shot, children under 12 and children in the age group 12-18 years who are fully vaccinated (booster shot not required). Other exceptions are specified in the protective measure.

New Year’s Eve celebrations:
For the period from December 30th, 2021 to January 1st, 2022, stricter entry conditions are introduced for short-term travels (up to 24 hours) with the aim to reduce travels to celebrate New Year’s Eve. Persons travelling to the Czech Republic will have to present a negative PCR test result before travel, the only exception applies to persons vaccinated with the booster shot.


Above mentioned rules are not applicable for Czech citizens and foreign nationals with permanent or long-term residence in the territory of the Czech Republic, current rules are still valid. If they arrive by a means of public transport, they are still allowed to only have the result of an antigen test instead of the result of an PCR test before entering the territory of the Czech Republic, and if they arrive individually (by car) such persons are exempt from the obligation to have a test before entering the territory of the Czech Republic. Vaccinated persons are exempt from testing.
