Romanians traveling to the Czech Republic need to announce their arrival to the public health department corresponding to the area they stay in after the country added Romania to the “red” list of countries with a high epidemiological risk, Mediafax reported.
They also need to get tested for Covid-19, at their own expense, if the health authority did not impose other quarantine measures.
At the same time, Romanians traveling to Belgium from certain areas of the country need to self-isolate and get tested for Covid-19, starting August 1. Twenty-four counties are on the red list, namely Alba, Argeș, Brasov, Brăila, Buzău, Călarași, Constanța, Covasna, Dâmbovița, Dolj, Galați, Giurgiu, Gorj, Harghita, Ialomița, Mehedinți, Mureș, Olt, Prahova, Sibiu, Teleorman, Tulcea, Vrancea, and Vâlcea.
Meanwhile, Slovenia also added Romania to its red list and requires a 14-day isolation period, at a hotel or another location, for Romanians arriving in the country.
Italy also extended until August 9 the requirement for Romanian and Bulgarian travelers arriving in the country to isolate for 14 days.
Among the countries requiring Romanians to isolate are UK, Ireland, Norway, Estonia, Latvia, and Switzerland, where a ten-day quarantine will be required even for those who show a negative Covid-19 test, starting August 8. Switzerland's list of countries from where arrivals are required to quarantine is updated here.
At the same time, several states require Romanian travelers to show a negative Covid-19 test to allow entrance, among them Greece, Austria, Hungary, and Russia.
The list of requirements imposed by each country is updated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MAE) here.
