A ban on entry to the Czech Republic from Russia: simple and clear

From tomorrow, the Czech Republic introduces a ban on visiting Russia in connection with the spread of the delta mutation in the Russian Federation. Especially for our editorial office, Red Panda, the largest visa agent in the Czech Republic, prepared a short and understandable material explaining the innovations.

From 01.07.2021 the Czech Republic introduces a new package of restrictions on crossing state borders. So residents of the Czech Republic are prohibited from visiting countries with an extremely high risk of infection with Covid-19 (with a number of exceptions). The list of such countries includes the Russian Federation, marked in black.

The ban also applies to entry into the Czech Republic from the Russian Federation. Only the following categories of foreigners will be able to return from Russia to the Czech Republic:

– EU citizens with a residence permit

– foreigners with permanent residence

Foreigners with a residence permit or long-term visas will not be able to return to the Czech Republic if they have been in the Russian Federation for more than 12 hours in the last 14 days.

A possible solution would be to leave the Russian Federation to a third country (Turkey, Ukraine, etc.), quarantine for 14 days and then fly to the Czech Republic.

The Czech Ministry of Health is monitoring the current situation and, if the epidemiological situation in Russia improves, it will remove the restriction, but not earlier than 14 days from the entry into force of the current restrictions.
