Control over arriving passengers has been tightened at Prague airport

At the airport in Prague, control over arriving passengers has been tightened

The airport of the Czech capital encourages passengers to familiarize themselves in advance and carefully observe the current rules for entering the country. Before flying to Prague, all necessary documents must be prepared and printed, including arrival forms and proof of vaccination status.

In accordance with the new protective measures introduced by the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic, Prague airport, police and customs administration countries, control over the current conditions of entry into the Czech Republic will be strengthened many times . This is a natural reaction of the authorities to the increasing traffic at the airport, including from tourists, experts say.

Vaclav Havel Airport

From September 1, 2021 the order of arrival of all passengers arriving at the Vaclav Havel Airport in Prague has been adjusted. At the same time, changes in both terminals of the Prague airport affected both tourists and citizens of the Czech Republic and EU countries.

All arrivals must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 with drugs approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA). The country of departure also matters: only those who have arrived from countries whose certificates and QR codes are officially recognized will be able to cross the Czech border without any problems.  All procedures will take place before passport border control in terminals 1 and 2.

In accordance with current regulations, upon arrival in the Czech Republic, they check the correctness of filling out the Passenger Registration Form, the availability of vaccination certificates or certificates of recovery for the last 180 days. Passengers may be asked to provide a negative test result for COVID-19 — the decision is made individually for each passenger depending on which country the plane arrived from.

Relevant the conditions of entry into the Czech Republic are published on the official website of the Ministry of the Interior of the Czech Republic. The lists of countries with different degrees of risk are regularly updated on the website of the Ministry of Health.
