On Wednesday, Germany will end permanent border controls with the Czech Republic, which was introduced on 14 February due to the difficult epidemic situation in the Czech Republic.
“Representatives of the Federal Ministry of the Interior, who are members of the joint coordination body, informed about it along the working line,”
“I welcome this report. It is not only a step towards the desired return to normal in Czech-German relations, but also an encouragement in a joint effort to manage the coronavirus pandemic”, said Tomáš Kafka
While Germany stopped permanent controls on the border with Tyrol at the end of March, in the case of the Czech Republic, German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer decided to extend it until at least 14 April. Now Germany will also suspend border controls with the Czech Republic, where the epidemic situation has significantly improved in recent weeks.
