As the Bahraini vaccination certificate has been newly recognized by the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic, the visa agenda has been extended to more categories of applicants, despite the fact Bahrain is considered a country with a very high pandemic risk.

According to the current Protective Measures issued by the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic, the visa agenda for countries with a very high risk of Covid-19 pandemic allows to accept all long-term visas and long-term stays. Applications for Schengen visas can be accepted if the person is:

- a family member of Czech citizens and EU citizens living in the Czech Republic

- individual whose entry is in the interest of the Czech Republic proved by a letter from the respective ministry in the Czech Republic

- diplomats and officials working for international organizations accredited by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic

- in case of urgent and emergency situations

- a holder of a national certificate on completed vaccination, which is accepted by the Czech Republic authorities and listed on the website of the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic. This means that only certificates of vaccination with Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca/Oxford are recognized. The last dose is required to have been received not less than 14 days ahead of estimated arrival time but not longer than 9 months.

Before entering the Czech Republic from Bahrain, the traveller must:

  • submit the filled arrival form
  • after arrival in the Czech Republic, a PCR test must be done not earlier than 5 days but not later then 14 days since the arrival in the Czech Republic. Before the negative result PCR test is presented, the person needs to comply with a restriction of free movement obligation.
  • for a period of 14 days after the arrival in the Czech Republic, using a FFP2 standard facemask (available in Czech pharmacies and known in Czech as “respirátor”) during his/her essential travels within the free movement restrictions

More information can be found on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic.

Exemptions from all the above stated conditions apply for:

- EU citizens and foreigners with a long-term residence in the EU who are transiting through the Czech Republic for up to 12 hours - PCR test 72 hours before the trip is required;

- accredited personnel of diplomatic missions registered at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and their private service staff; holders of diplomatic passports traveling to the Czech Republic for an official purpose for a period of maximum 72 hours;

- children under 6 years of age.
