If the border ticket does not include a photograph of the passenger, the passenger must present a Ukrainian identity document together with the border ticket.

Guest tickets, including their variants, issued so far, remain valid. Newly, it is no longer necessary to apply for a guest ticket if the above conditions are met.

Under the above conditions, free transport it allowed:

  • Only in the territory of the Capital City of Prague (zones P, 0, B), in all means of transport of the Prague Integrated Transport (PID), excluding trains (here, the citizens of Ukraine follow the price list defined by the Ministry of Finance of the Czech Republic)
  • It does not apply to outer tariff zones of the Prague Integrated Transport (PID) for journeys by intraregional bus lines in the territory of the Liberec Region, the Ústí Region, the Hradec Králové Region, the Pardubice Region and the Vysočina Region

Conditions for travelling in the territory of the Central Bohemian Region (outer tariff zones) from 1 May 2022

Starting from Sunday, 1 May 2022, travelling within the Prague Integrated Transport in the territory of the Central Bohemian Region will be allowed free of charge under the same conditions as on trains throughout the Czech Republic, i.e. for a maximum of 5 days from obtaining documents on temporary protection.

The transport will be allowed for a period of 5 days, starting from the day on which the passenger was issued a visa (visa stamp) for the purpose of temporary protection. Transportation for CZK 0 is also provided to passengers under the age of 18 who are accompanied by persons with the valid entitlement.
