Non-vaccinated travelers coming from green and orange countries must take an antigen or PCR test before returning or up to five days after arriving.

Non-vaccinated travelers coming from red and dark red countries must take an antigen or PCR test before returning if they use public travel (including airlines) to enter the Czech Republic. They must also self-quarantine upon arrival, and take another antigen or PCR test 5-14 days after arriving, staying in quarantine until the result is known.

All travelers must now fill in an Arrival Form before entering the Czech Republic.
