These countries have been added to the red category, imposing to travellers the requirement of a PCR or antigen test taken before reaching Czechia. In addition, a quarantine requirement is mandatory, followed by another PCR or antigen test taken no earlier than the fifth day but no later than day 14 after entering the country, SchengenVisaInfo.com reports.

Entry requirements will be tightened for San Marino arrivals as well, since the country has been added to Czechia’s orange list.

The remaining red category countries include the following:

Andorra
Bulgaria
Belgium
Denmark
Ireland
Iceland
Lithuania
Liechtenstein
Monaco
Estonia
France
Greece
Sweden
Switzerland
Spain
Portugal

The same rule of double testing and quarantine requirement applies to several third countries like Montenegro, Israel, Kosovo, Lebanon, Northern Macedonia and the United States, which were last week downgraded from the green to the dark red list, meaning that these territories are considered highly affected by the virus. In addition, Cyprus, UK, Turkey and Russia are also in the dark red category.
