The Czech Republic has joined most of its European counterparts in lifting all COVID-19 related travel restrictions for foreign tourists and Czech citizens.
Travelers will no longer need to complete an arrival form or show proof of previous vaccination or infection upon returning from abroad.
However, it is always recommended that travelers check the protocols directly with their means of transport, such as an airline.
“We are very pleased that all travel restrictions have been lifted, which aligns perfectly with the newly relaunched direct flights on Delta between New York and Prague scheduled for the summer season,” said Michaela Claudino, director of Czech Tourism. USA & Canada, in a press release.
The Czech Republic hoped to protect its ranking in the Global Peace Index to maintain its advantage as a tourist attraction. The World Peace Index assesses a wide range of destination safety aspects and predicts a strong recovery in this year’s summer season due to declining COVID case numbers and pent-up travel demand among consumers.
“The Czech Republic has maintained its place in the world’s top 10. This subject is important in the marketing communication of the destination in all segments, both towards the tourists themselves and especially at the level of B2B marketing, when it is necessary. to assure our partners from major travel agencies or conference organizers that the Czech Republic is an objectively safe place for their customers,” said Jan Herget, Director of CzechTourism.
