Czech Republic lifts entry restrictions for travellers from EU/Schengen nations

The authorities of the Czech Republic has made an announcement that the European Union/Schengen region travellers and the returning citizens will no longer be able to face the entry restrictions.

The statement of the Czech Republic’s Ministry of Health highlighted in the statement, “As of Friday, March 18, returns from EU countries and Andorra, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Norway, San Marino, Switzerland and the Vatican are unrestricted.”

The Ministry has clarified that the restriction-free entry will not apply to EU/Schengen region travellers as well as citizens entering Czechia after a visit to a non-EU nation.

Along with this, this suggests that the entry rules and regulations will not be applied, which will be based on the nation an individual is reaching Czechia from.

The Ministry outlined that “The conditions for return from non-EU countries remain the same.”

Moreover, the travellers that are getting the entry and returning to Czechia after staying in a non-EU country will still be needed to fill out the Passenger Locator Form and show a valid vaccination or the recovery certificate.

On the other hand, the EU/Schengen Area travellers and Czech citizens who do not hold a vaccination as well as the recovery pass and who are not travelling from a non-EU nation can also enter Czechia.

The individuals must take a PCR or a rapid antigen test prior to the arrival and a second CR test between the fifth and the second day of arrival.

However, for making the changes to entry rules for EU/Schengen Area travellers, the authorities have made the announcement that all of the following third nations will continue to remain the part of the safe third nations list:-

  • Indonesia
  • South Korea
  • Qatar
  • Colombia
