Entry To Czech Republic
A Czech Republic Schengen visa enables a foreign person to go to a Schengen port-of-entry (usually an airport) and request to be granted permission to enter the country. We can ensure your visa application goes smoothly, however, entrance to the Schengen zone is not guaranteed by an approved visa.
Because interview wait periods vary by location, season, and visa type, you should apply for your Czech Republic visa as soon as possible.
We can help you get an appointment, however we cannot offer any dates earlier than what is available at the relevant Czech visa office in your country.
Czech Republic National D-Visas
You must apply for a residency permit or national D-Visa, rather than a Czech Republic Schengen Visa if you plan to stay in Czech Republic for more than 90 days.
Your long-stay visa must be for a period of three months to one year, regardless of the length of your anticipated stay. You must apply for a residence permit at a prefecture in order to prolong your stay beyond the duration of your visa.
The long-stay visa is comparable to a Schengen visa throughout its validity term, allowing you to travel and remain in the Schengen Area outside of Czech Republic for up to 90 days in any 180-day period, under the same circumstances as if you had a Schengen visa.
If you are a citizen of a country that can visit the Schengen zone without a visa, then you may travel visa-free and apply for your national visa / residence permit from within the country you wish to stay in long-term.
