The Czech Republic has officially reopened its borders to British tourists with new guidelines in place to protect health and safety of all visitors.
Since the 4th July, the Czech Republic has been declared exempt from the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advice against all non-essential international travel. This is based on the current assessment of COVID-19 risks. The CzechTourism board is now slowly starting to open-up and welcome visitors from all over the world, with both EasyJet and Ryanair resuming direct flights between the two countries.
Katarina Hobbs Head of CzechTourism UK & Ireland states:
“We are really excited about the fact that Czech Republic borders are now open to the British tourists and that our country also got on to the list of air bridges too. It’s been a long few months since this terrible pandemic. Now we are ready to welcome tourists back again.
To protect the health and safety of all tourists, the Czech Government has put the following restrictions in place:
- Face masks are required:
- In all official Government building, cultural sights, restaurants (unless you are eating or drinking)
- In all public transport (including taxis)
- Maintain a distance of at least 2 metres
The following is recommended when entering restaurants, cafés and bars:
- Disinfect your hands upon entry
- Maintain a distance of at least 1.5 metres from the staff and other customers
- Only remove your face mask when eating or drinking
- Pay by card, preferably contactless, whenever possible
In addition to this, the Czech Association of Hotels and Restaurants have announced a ‘Stay Safe’ program, encouraging widespread hygiene-standard compliance under a united label. To be part of this program, businesses must adhere to the principles of the project and the controls performed by guests themselves. All potential complaints are addressed individually by the AHR CR, ensuring the standard of all properties is of the highest order.
