CURRENTLY: The Government approved on February 15, 2021, the extension of COVID-Lázně (Covid-Spa) program until December 31st, 2021. The notification is now awaiting approval from the European Commission.
The aim of the grant is to support the spa tourism industry. The support will be implemented in the form of support for the demand for tourism services or support for the demand for curative and preventive stays in spas (these are not stays implemented as part of comprehensive or contributory spa care).
Purpose/conditions for drawing: Spa facilities may apply for support/subsidy under Act No. 164/2001 Coll., The Spa Act. The facilities must be registered with their respective regional authority as facilities authorised to provide spa medical rehabilitation care services.
Support may not be granted to a firm that was already in difficulty on December 31, 2019
The maximum amount of support: The subsidy can be used to redeem applied discount vouchers. This subsidy is provided only if it was applied by a person over 18 years of age spending a minimum of six nights in the spa facility and undergoing at least five spa medical rehabilitation treatments during their stay. The subsidy can be provided for the redemption of the applied discount voucher only if no other similar discount has been applied (eg. a discount for a stay or procedures provided by a region or a city or another ministry). One discount voucher can be used for the purpose defined above, for 1 person over the age of 18 years and 1 stay made in the relevant period. The subsidy can also be applied to more stays of the person who generated a new voucher for a new stay.
The grant will be reimbursed based on the Ex Post Waiver Request Form. The total allocation is 1 billion Czech crowns
Relevant period and receipt of applications: The exact conditions for drawing on the new call are currently being set and are yet to be published. The Ministry of Regional Development is doing everything in its power to make it possible to reimburse discounts for stays from 1.1.2021. The new call should apply to stays that will be implemented by June 30, 2021, at the latest.
Note: the previous call was closed on December 31, 2020.
