From 1 June, the Czech Republic is launching QR codes that will allow people vaccinated in the country to access their vaccination certificates. Travelling from the Czech Republic to other countries and vice versa, arriving in Czechia, will be much easier. The current situation will allow people who have received the first coronavirus vaccine dose in the Czech Republic at least three weeks before this Monday, 31 May, to enter seven countries, namely Germany, Poland, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia. Croatia should join the list of countries accepting vaccinated people from Czechia soon, too.
Vaccination certificate issuance
Czech citizens will be allowed to access their vaccination certificates from 1 June. Foreign nationals who were vaccinated against COVID-19 in Czechia can access their certificates from 7 June. In both cases, the vaccination certificates will be available at ocko.uzis.cz
Accepting tourists from foreign countries
Not only will the Czech Republic issue the vaccination certificates, but it will also recognise certificates from several countries. Accepting certificates will allow visitors from Slovakia, Hungary, Poland, Slovenia, Austria, and Germany, as well as Australia, Israel, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea and Thailand to enter the country.
Recognising certificates from the countries listed above will allow their holders to enjoy the services available to the public in the country.
Moreover, Prime Minister Andrej Babiš claims that people between the ages of 16 and 29 can register for the COVID-19 vaccination in the Czech Republic from this Friday, 4 June. You can find more information about how to properly register here.
