The Czech Republic placed Romania on the orange list. Mandatory quarantine and the second test in the Czech Republic are eliminated!
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs states that the Czech authorities have revised the conditions for entry into the Czech Republic for people arriving from Romania, by including Romania in the category of states with medium risk of infection (orange list).
The new measures apply from 24 May 2021, and the main changes aim to eliminate the obligation of quarantine and the second test within 5 days of arrival in the Czech Republic.
Thus, starting with May 24, people traveling from Romania can enter the Czech Republic provided:
- Completion, prior to arrival in the Czech Republic, of the Electronic Health Passenger Locator Form available at www.prijezdovyformular.cz;
- presentation at the entry into Czech territory of the negative result of a PCR molecular test performed no later than 72 hours before or of an antigen test performed no later than 24 hours prior to departure to the Czech Republic;
- wearing an FFP2 respirator or equivalent or a disposable surgical mask outside the home for a period of 14 days after arrival in the Czech Republic.
At the same time, persons arriving from Romania and transiting the Czech territory within a maximum of 12 hours are exempted from the obligations to complete the Electronic Location Form and present the negative test result for COVID-19 upon entering the Czech territory. It is mandatory to wear a respirator FFP2 or equivalent in public places. The MFA emphasizes that travel to the Czech Republic for tourism purposes is still not permitted.
The obligation of students, pupils and workers to present to the educational unit, respectively to the employer, the negative result of a test before the start of the activity remains in force.
