The Czech Republic’s Ministry of Health eased all COVID-19 travel restrictions for both foreign tourists and Czech citizens as of April 9, 2022.
Now, travellers will no longer need to fill in an arrival form or submit proof of vaccination or a previous infection when returning from abroad.
However, it is still recommended for travellers to verify the conditions of transport (including proof of infectivity, i.e. test, vaccination, illness) directly with the agreed public transport carrier (plane, bus, train).
Michaela Claudino, director of Czech Tourism USA & Canada, said: “We are very happy all the travel restrictions have been lifted which aligns perfectly with the newly relaunched direct flights on Delta between NYC and Prague planned for the summer season.”
The World Peace Index evaluates a wide range of safety aspects of the destination and can be a good guide for the upcoming tourist season.
The Czech Republic’s ninth place in the World Peace Index is an excellent benefit for the tourism industry, which is anticipating a strong recovery during this year’s summer season due to falling numbers of COVID-19 cases and a built up desire for travel amongst consumers. Safety has become an essential criterion for choosing a holiday destination as a result of the current war conflict in Ukraine.
CzechTourism director Jan Herget said: “The Czech Republic has maintained its place in the world’s top 10 – between Ireland and Canada. This topic is important in the marketing communication of the destination across segments, both towards the tourists themselves and especially at the level of B2B marketing, when it is necessary to assure our partners from large travel agencies or conference organizers that the Czech Republic is an objectively safe place for their clients.”
