Foreign travel advice

Czech Republic

Summary

There will be no change to the rights and status of EU nationals living in the UK, nor UK nationals living in the EU, while the UK remains in the EU.

Over 300,000 British nationals visit the Czech Republic every year. Most visits are trouble-free.

If you need to contact the emergency services call 112.

Carry your passport with you at all times for identification. The police may fine you or arrest you if you fail to do so. Keep copies of your insurance policy, European Health Insurance Card, ticket details and a 24-hour emergency number in a safe place and leave further copies with family or friends in the UK.

Only buy alcohol from legitimate places like supermarkets or bottle shops. Make sure the bottle has an original, untouched seal around the cork or cap. See Crime

Although there is no recent history of terrorism in the Czech Republic, attacks can’t be ruled out. There may be increased security in place over the Christmas and New Year period, including at Christmas markets and other major events that might attract large crowds. You should remain vigilant and follow the advice of local authorities. See Terrorism

If you’re abroad and you need emergency help from the UK government, contact the nearest British embassy, consulate or high commission.
