During a temporary stay in a Member State of the European Union, it allows you to benefit from the medically necessary care.

In the Czech Republic, the following diseases are common: ascaris, diphtheria, tick encephalitis (see ticks), hepatitis A and B, sexually transmitted diseases, polio, rabies, AIDS, tetanus, tuberculosis, typhoid.

Security in the Czech Republic

Delinquency (mainly pickpocketing) is increasing in Prague on the sites most frequented by tourists (the castle and its access routes, the Charles Bridge, the Place de l’Horloge Astronomical, the hill of Petrin, among others, the places of restoration and transit lines, trams and subways, especially Line 22). Also, before you go to the Czech Republic, consider visiting the France Diplomacy website.

In addition, the repatriation guarantee is an essential criterion. In the event of a serious accident it is sometimes necessary to carry out a medicalized repatriation to the nearest medical centre or to the country of residence. Depending on where you are at the time of the accident, and depending on the medical prognosis, it may be necessary to Charter a helicopter or a medicalized aircraft.
