Croatia, Estonia, France, Lithuania and Luxembourg will turn green on the new Czech travel map of Covid-19 risk valid from Monday, according to the latest information from the Czech Health Ministry. Travelers coming from green countries will be able to enter the Czech Republic without Covid-19-related restrictions.

Albania, Australia, Austria, Bulgaria, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Israel, Japan, Lebanon, New Zealand, North Macedonia, Norway, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Singapore, Slovakia, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, the USA and the Vatican will all be in the green category as of Monday.

Also from next week, the Netherlands and Spain will move from the high-risk red to the medium-risk orange. Belgium, Cyprus, Denmark, Greece, Ireland, Latvia, Portugal, Slovenia, Sweden and Switzerland are also in this group.

From Monday, the only red high-risk country will be the Canary Islands.

Most other outside the EU, including the UK, remain in the dark-red category of regions with very high risk of Covid-19.

On arrival from dark red, red and orange countries, a negative Covid-19 test is required in advance from the travelers coming via public transport, including planes. Those coming via private transport must take an antigen or a PCR test within five days if coming from an orange country, and a PCR test if coming from a red country.

If coming from a dark red country, travelers must take a PCR test between five and 14 days after their arrival, and stay in self-quarantine until the test result is known. People whose vaccination was completed at least 14 days ago, or those who recovered from Covid-19 in the past 180 days, do not have to self-quarantine and can take a PCR test immediately after arrival.

Travelers coming from all categories except green countries must fill in an arrival form before entering the Czech Republic.

Travel to countries with an extreme risk of new coronavirus variants remains banned. These countries include Botswana, Brazil, Colombia, Eswatini, India, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Nepal, Peru, South Africa, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The ban is valid until the end of June, and may be extended.

Entry to the Czech Republic from these extreme-risk states is possible only for Czech citizens and residents, accredited members of diplomatic missions, and for those whose entry is in the interest of the Czech Republic. They must provide a negative Covid-19 test before their return, undergo another PCR test within 24 hours of their arrival in the Czech Republic, and take a third test 10 days after their arrival, staying in quarantine until then.
