Are you a foreigner and your Czech visa is about to expire?
Access to the immigration authorities – such as the Ministry of Interior or the Foreign Police – is currently very limited as a consequence of the state of emergency announced due to the Covid-19 situation. The Ministry invites you to use non-personal forms of contact with the local branch offices where attendance in-person is not required by law. Foreigners who are legally present in the Czech Republic since the announcement of the state of emergency may remain in Czech territory for the duration of the state of emergency without needing to manage their immigration matters.
Foreigners not allowed to enter the Czech Republic
Until the state of emergency has been rescinded, all foreigners are forbidden to enter the Czech Republic. This ban is not limited only to those who arrive from Covid-19 high-risk countries, but applies to all foreigners. The exception applies only to those who hold a long- term permit to stay (visa or residence permit) or permanent residency, or to one of 15 other strictly defined exceptions. Among others, lorry drivers, members of ambulance crews, fire fighters, police or EU nationals transiting through the Czech Republic will be allowed entry. Tourists will not be allowed entry to the Czech Republic.
