Vaccines and safety in the Czech Republic

Vaccines and local diseases

No vaccinations are required for visitors. However, HIV testing is compulsory for all foreigners wishing to work in the Czech Republic. The European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) certifies your entitlement to health insurance in Europe. During a temporary stay in a member state of the European Union, it entitles you to reimbursement of medically necessary treatment.

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

Safety in the Czech Republic

Crime (mainly pickpocketing) is on the increase in Prague at the sites most frequented by tourists (the castle and its access roads, Charles Bridge, Astronomical Clock Square, Petrin Hill, in particular, as well as restaurants and public transport lines, streetcars and subway trains, especially line 22). Before travelling to the Czech Republic, be sure to consult the France Diplomatie website.

Health and repatriation insurance in the Czech Republic

Why take out international health insurance when traveling or living in the Czech Republic? Quite simply because healthcare costs can quickly reach very high levels abroad. Repatriation cover is also an essential criterion. In the event of a serious accident, medical repatriation to the nearest medical center or to the country of residence may be necessary. Depending on where you are at the time of the accident, and the medical prognosis, it may be necessary to charter a helicopter or medical aircraft.
