Norway, Cyprus, and Luxembourg will move from high-risk red to medium-risk orange on the latest Czech Covid-19 travel map as of Monday, the Health Ministry has announced.

Travel from these countries to the Czech Republic will be easier for those without proof of vaccination or recovery from Covid-19 as of next week.

Some other countries will also change color in the latest map, but these changes will not impact travel conditions to the Czech Republic.

The ministry updates its map every week based on data from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control. A visual version of the new Czech map has not been published, but roughly corresponds to the ECDC map.

As of Monday, green countries with a low risk of Covid-19 infection will include Liechtenstein, Malta, Poland, the Vatican and the Canary Islands in Europe, and Australia, Hong Kong, Chile, South Korea, Jordan, Canada, Qatar, Kuwait, Macao, New Zealand, Rwanda, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan and Uruguay outside of Europe.

The medium-risk orange category will be made up of Andorra, Denmark, Finland, France, Iceland, Italy, Cyprus, Luxembourg, Hungary, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, San Marino, Spain, Sweden, the Balearic Islands and Azores and Madeira.

Travelers without proof of vaccination or recovery coming from green and orange countries must fill in an arrival form and either produce a negative Covid-19 test before entering the Czech Republic, or take a test no later than five days after their arrival.

From Monday, red countries with a high risk of infection will include Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Ireland, Germany, Austria, Greece, Slovakia and Switzerland. All other countries not mentioned above are considered dark red, with a very high risk of infection.

Travelers without proof of vaccination or recovery coming from red or dark red countries must take a PCR test between 5-14 days after their return, and quarantine until the test result comes back. Those using public transport (including airlines) must get tested before entering the Czech Republic, as well.

These restrictions do not apply to those with completed Covid-19 vaccination or a certificate proving that they recovered from Covid-19 in the past 180 days.

All travelers must fill in an arrival form when entering the Czech Republic, regardless of their vaccination status or the color of country they are coming from.

The Czech Republic accepts the vaccination of those from non-EU countries who were given vaccines approved by the European Medicines Agency, or corresponding vaccines approved by the World Health Organisation for emergency use.

To enter the Czech Republic, these travelers must have a certificate that can be verified and is included in the list of certificates on the Health Ministry website.
