Effective 25 October 2022, entry will be denied to those Russian citizens who come to Czechia via the external Schengen borders – i.e. via the international airport – for the purpose of tourism, sports or culture. This measure will apply to travellers with a valid Schengen visa issued by any EU member state.
Czechia thus follows the Baltic countries, Finland and Poland in closing their borders to Russian tourists.
Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, and United Arab Emirates have been added to the list of countries that do not require a visa for official visits, tourist visits or transit for holders of diplomatic and special passports
