News for Tourist Guides and Tourists – the Czech Tourist Guide Identification Card
From March 2021, every tourist guide in the Czech Republic is obliged to wear a dedicated ID card - the Czech Tourist Guide Identification Card, issued by the Ministry of Regional Development. Guides shall wear this ID card visibly on their clothing when providing guide services.
The new legal regulation of guide activities is intended to contribute to awareness of the guides’ qualifications and to prevent provision of inferior quality guide services in the tourism sector. 
  
Two types of guide ID cards are issued: 1st degree without the need to prove professional qualification and 2nd degree with proof of professional qualifications (knowledge or skills required for the work of a tourist guide, but neither language skills nor regional specializations are examined).  
The validity of ID cards can be verified in the public list of tourist guides
  
Guides from other EU Member States may provide their services in the Czech Republic on the basis of EU law in the temporary provision of services mode, but they must notify the Ministry of Regional Development in advance of their activity. 
  
You will find more information on the Ministry of Regional Development website
