Coronavirus in the Czech Republic VII: Traveling from March 16, 2020

In our yesterday’s article, we informed you about the traveling restrictions lasting from Friday, March 13, to Monday, March 16. However, it is also necessary for you to know what restrictions will be in place from March 16, 0:00 AM. That’s what this article is about.

Traveling to the Czech Republic

From Monday 0:00 AM, March 16, no tourists will be allowed to enter the country, even if they arrive from safe countries. That means that all foreigners who need to get into the Czech Republic but don’t have a residence permit, have to return by this time otherwise they will be denied entry regardless of their situation. It is also important to keep in mind that they’ll be quarantined for 14 days in case of disease symptoms.

All foreigners with residence permits will be treated as Czech citizens and as such will be allowed to enter the Czech Republic. However, if they come from high-risk countries they’ll be quarantined upon arrival, while those coming from safe countries will be quarantined only if they experience disease symptoms.

Leaving the Czech Republic

All foreigners, both tourists, and people with residence permits will be able to leave, however, they won’t be allowed to return to the Czech Republic during the state of emergency. Therefore, we kindly advise you to avoid leaving this country, unless you want to travel to a safe country or it is absolutely necessary for you to leave.

To understand the situation better, you can take a look at this very useful table from the Ministry of Interior.

These restrictions will be in place for at least one month (depending on the situation). As of today, some new countermeasures have come into effect, so we’re preparing more articles to cover them all for you.

Either way, protect yourself safe from the disease in any way possible, don’t travel if you don’t have to and check yourself for symptoms as often as you can.
