Recognition of vaccination certificates from other countries

 



 

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

US 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).

Your passport should be valid for at least three months after the anticipated date of departure from the territory of Schengen member states.

There is no direct flight between the US and the Czech Republic. Please check first with transit countries whether you will be allowed to travel to the Czech Republic and back to the USA.

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

All air passengers returning to the United States, including U.S. citizens and fully vaccinated people, are also required to have a negative COVID-19 test result.


 

For the above-mentioned reasons, consider carefully your travel plans!

As the situation develops, please consult the content of the article regularly.
