  1. Conditions for entry related to residence
  2. Conditions for entry related to the epidemic
  3. International transport

  

Conditions for entry related to residence:

The Czech territory can be entered by:

  • Czech citizens
  • EU citizens
  • third country citizens with residence permit in the Czech Republic
  • third country citizens with residence permit in another EU member state
     

For the purpose of entry, it is necessary to have a Certificate for International Transport Workers OR another proof of professional competence (template available at the MoI website).

  

Conditions for entry related to the epidemic:

If the person entering CZ has stayed in the territory of a red-zone country for more than 12 hours in the last 14 days:

Upon entry, these persons do not have an obligation to:

  • inform a regional hygienic station
  • undergo a PCR test
  • undergo necessary quarantine measures
     

These persons do have an obligation to:

  • wear respiratory protective equipment (face mask) on the territory of the Czech Republic for a period of 14 days after entering the territory of the Czech Republic.

  

International transport:

  • Lorry drivers (drivers’ assistants are not drivers and the exception cannot be applied to them),

  • Bus drivers (esp. repatriation buses),

  • Transport aircraft crews and crews of service flights,

  • Train drivers, train crews and carriage inspectors,

  • Ship captains and cargo vessel crews,

  • Road managers’ vehicle crews,

  • Drivers of a vehicle for up to 9 passengers, who are transporting one of the above mentioned categories of people to their place of work and back, and the empty journeys associated with those transportations. The driver must be employed in the same company as the people he/she is transporting.

  • External drivers of a vehicle for up to 9 passengers, but only in case of alternating ship captains and cargo vessel crews (the driver must carry a contract / agreement).

  • Accompanying vehicles of excessive cargos (must be proved with a power of attorney from the carrier or the organization responsible for transport)
     

Explanation:

This includes exceptions for people working in international transport.
 

Lorry drivers or other freight vehicle drivers - the decisive factor is classification of vehicles in the vehicle registration ID as category N - a vehicle for transport of cargo. All member states have the same categories of vehicles, therefore this concerns foreign vehicles as well. Information in the vehicle registration ID should either indicate that it is a “freight vehicle” or indicate the category.

The rule applies for the following categories:

  • N1 = maximum permissible weight does not exceed 3,5t - this can include standard cars, e.g. station wagons, which in past used to be distinguished by bars separating the trunk, now only by the classification in the vehicle’s registration ID; this category mostly includes vans

  • N2 = maximum permissible weight is more than 3500 kg, but does not exceed 12 000 kg

  • N3 = maximum permissible weight is more than 12 000 kg

 Note: for distinguishing personal transport from freight transport - personal transport vehicles are in category M.
 

Drivers cannot transport other people (driver’s assistant, family members etc., unless they one of the exceptions applies to them - e.g. repatriation and family reunification).

Transport aircraft crews - this includes the crew and pilots, aircrafts with passengers and cargo planes, as well as crews of flights for technical purposes (maintenance and service), position flights (empty flights) etc.

Crews of aircrafts for aerial work - this includes very specific situations - especially aerial photography, aerial work in agriculture, construction etc.

Drivers transporting international transport workers - lorry drivers or e.g. cargo ship crew can be transported by another driver - but only in case of alternating ship captains and cargo ship crews the driver can be contractual/external (the driver must show a haulage agreement). Ship captains and cargo ship crews must have the Certificate Form for International Transport Workers. A driver transporting people other than ship captains and cargo ship crews must have the Certificate Form for International Transport Workers - i.e. a driver transporting people to work must be employed in the same company.
 

For the above mentioned professions, this includes:

  • those who are crossing the state border of the Czech Republic in a freight vehicle, boat or train,

  • those who are commuting to work in another state - e.g. sailors driving a car from Děčín to Hamburg, people driving a car to pick up a lorry - however, they still must use the means in order to work in international transport (see above - not a domestic van driver working in Germany).

For these cases it is NECESSARY to prove this fact - i.e. to have relevant documents proving their professional qualification or have the Certificate Form for International Transport Workers. This Certificate includes a section for drivers transporting e.g. sailors to their workplace and back.
