The new measures plan to allow more travellers to enter the capital for tourism reasons, although they must now be fully vaccinated and hold proof with valid documentation. 

“We are coordinating the new model with representatives of the Ministry of Health and other security forces present at the airport,” said Jiri Kraus, vice-chairman of the Prague Airport board of directors. “We are also increasing our personnel capacity and reinforcing the technical equipment to speed up the entire check-in process on arrivals. Passengers can help accelerated the Czech arrival checks, too, by having reviewed the current conditions and prepared all documents in advance.”  

Passengers will be inspected by staff at the airport, members of the police force and the customs administration upon arrival. This method is set to meet all conditions for entry into the country, as well as increase security.
