Government to add eight non-EU states to free travel list Wednesday

The government will on Wednesday add eight non-EU states to its list of countries from which people can travel freely to the Czech Republic. The countries are Montenegro, Serbia, Thailand, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and South Korea. As of now, Czechs can only freely enter Montenegro and Serbia among the states on the list.

The Czech list is around half as long as one approved by European Union member states, including the Czech Republic. The Prague government selected its own national list on the basis of the countries’ Covid-19 situation, degree of mutual tourism and the possibility of reciprocity.
