Czech Republic to close border for Russian tourists from October 25, 2022
The Czech Republic will close the border for Russian tourists from October 25, 2022, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic announced on October 12, 2022.
“While in Ukraine, Russian rockets are falling on children’s playgrounds and on people who are simply going to work, up to 200 citizens of the Russian Federation travel to the Czech Republic via the international airport every day. That is why we agreed that entry will be denied to those Russian citizens who come to the Czech territory through the external Schengen borders — for tourism, sports, or culture,” said Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic Jan Lipavský.
In addition, the Czech government decided to support the education of Belarusian and Ukrainian students at Czech universities.
