Important Travel Document Information – Please Read

The Czech Republic is a popular tourist destination, and for good reason. The country is home to a rich history and culture, stunning natural beauty, and a vibrant city life. If you’re planning a trip to the Czech Republic, you’ll need to apply for a Czech republic visa.

A Czech republic visa is a type of visa that allows you to travel to the Czech Republic for up to 90 days within a 180-day period. The visa is valid for all Schengen countries, so you can also travel to other countries in the Schengen Area with your Czech republic visa.

Not everyone needs a Czech republic visa to travel to the Czech Republic. Citizens of most EU countries, as well as a few other countries, can enter the Czech Republic without a visa for up to 90 days. However, if you’re not from one of these countries, you will need to apply for a Czech republic visa.

The current appointment waiting times for Czech republic visas vary depending on the country where you’re applying. However, it’s always a good idea to apply as far in advance as you can.

Schengen Member Countries

The Schengen Area is a zone in which 27 European countries have abolished their internal borders to allow for free and unrestricted movement of people, while also adhering to common rules for controlling external borders and combating criminality by bolstering the common judicial system and police cooperation.

Except for Ireland and the nations that will soon be part of Romania, Bulgaria, Croatia, and Cyprus, the Schengen Area encompasses the majority of EU countries. Denmark, Iceland, Switzerland, and Lichtenstein are all members of the Schengen zone despite not being EU members.

Czech Republic Schengen C-Visas

A Schengen Czech Visa is an official travel document required for travel to the Czech Republic. It allows a person to travel to any country in the Schengen Area. For stays of up to 90 days for tourism or business purposes.

The Schengen area consists of 27 European countries.  The area acts as a single jurisdiction for international travel with a common visa policy.

Nationals of some countries, which have not yet reached a liberalization agreement will need to obtain this travel authorization before arrival in Europe.

Czech Republic Visa Process

Once you have completed the online form and submitted your details, your information will be reviewed and your application will enter processing. Any mistakes or un-clear information will be clarified or corrected to ensure no issues during your application.

An appointment must be scheduled to lodge your application. You must gather a selection of required documentation to prove you have sufficient financial means to support yourself, as well as evidence of your accommodation and flights to and from the country. We will give guidance in relation to the documents required.

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.

Schengen Member States

A Visa is required for any third national wishing to enter Czech Republic or any other Schengen country. It could be a short-stay Schengen C-visa for stays of up to 90 days or a national D-visa / residence permit for longer stays in the country.

Schengen visas are utilised by business persons, tourists, speciality workers, and students who want to stay in Czech Republic for a limited time for specific travel purposes. Those who apply for a Schengen visa must show the Visa Applications Centre that they intend to leave the Schengen Zone at the end of their temporary stay.
