The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control has placed the Czech Republic on its list of "green" countries with a low risk of Covid-19 infection as of Friday, June 18.

As a result, travel from the Czech Republic to other EU states that follow an EU council recommendation on lifting travel restrictions will be easier.

While not all EU countries are currently following the recommendation, one popular destinations for Czech travelers is.

To enter many tourist destinations that are popular among Czech travelers, including Croatia, travelers have previously been required submit a negative Covid-19 test or provide proof of vaccination.

With the Czech Republic's green status in the new European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control map, that will now change.

According to the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs, as Croatia follows the EU Council recommendation on travel, Czech residents can now enter Croatia under the same conditions as before the Covid-19 outbreak. There is still a request to report your entry into Croatia through an online form.

For travel requirements to other EU countries, consult the Czech Foreign Ministry.

In mid-June, the EU launched the Re-open EU initiative, where the rules for entering individual EU countries, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland are presented.

The platform uses the latest information from the ECDC, updated weekly.
