With the discovery of the new variant of coronavirus, the Czech covid travel restrictions defined by the Ministry of Health remain to be tight. While travel to the Czech Republic from outside, an EU Member State or Schengen Associated Country remains banned, people from EU Member State or Schengen Associated Countries are allowed to travel to the Czech Republic, but only for essential reasons. However, the Czech Ministry of Health has issued a list of high-risk, medium-risk countries that have strict restrictions. Travelers from low-risk countries can move freely.
Note: Since April 9th, 2022, the Czech Republic Passenger Locator Form is no longer necessary to enter the country.
Why should I apply in advance?
Applying in advance keeps you tension-free and is a cheaper option. Moreover, obtaining your QR code(s) for the Czech airport processing will significantly reduce airport screening and processing time. You will also be able to get your pre-travel testing done in time for departure.

I still have questions, what do I do?
Despite being a small country in Europe, the Czech Republic does not disappoint when it comes to tourism. It's almost like the quest for paradise ends in the Bohemian Paradise in Prague. Amid the most beautiful rock towns, interesting castles, sandstone towers, and the well-preserved folk architecture, one is destined to be lost. The incomparable beauty of rocks can be seen in Prachovske Rocks, which flaunts the impressive Císařská chodba and the prospects of Peace. Hruboskalsko Town will mesmerize you not only with thousands of impressive Rock Towers and beautiful hiking paths but also with an interesting Rock Castle and a Kopic estate.
Talking about castles, it's difficult to ignore the Drábské světničky (Beadles dwelling), with its infamous history of inconvertibility. The sight of river Jizera shadowed over by the Sandstone rock towers connected by wooden bridges is nothing short of Paradise.
iVisa.com wishes you a safe journey to your paradise!
