What are the conditions for traveling from neighbouring countries?

From 15 May 2021, vaccinated persons can enter the Czech Republic from Germany, Hungary, Slovenia, Poland, Slovakia and Austria (from 19 May) 22 days after receiving their first shot. These states should now allow the entry of people vaccinated in the Czech Republic under similar conditions, with the exception of Slovakia, which is still negotiating the conditions of entry.
