The student visa to the Czech Republic is probably one of the easiest permits you can get for a long-term stay in the Czech Republic. The denial rate for student visas is lower than for other types of long-term visas. So if you decide to move to the Czech Republic and your age is between 16 to 30 years, you should consider applying for a student visa because it is an ideal option. It can be your first step on the path of your immigration to the Czech Republic and Europe.
The grounds for issuing a student visa to the Czech Republic is your admission to the accredited educational institution. It can be a university, a secondary school, and Czech language courses.
The VISAPOINT system, which used to provide a record for a long-term visa to the Czech Republic was discontinued on October 31, 2017. A new registration system replaced it starting from December 2017. According the new rules, the date of receipt of an application for a long-term visa must be agreed in advance by e-mail. It is required to send a request to the e-mail address of the Czech Consulate in your country.
Your new request for appointment should include:
- Name and surname of the applicant in Latin according to the passport
- Date of Birth
- Passport number
- ype of stay (long-term visa)
- The contact information of the applicant (email address and telephone number)
- A scan of the first and second pages (with the photo) of the passport
- A scan of the document confirming the purpose of the stay (confirmation of admission) *
* All scans should be in JPEG or TIFF format, up to 10 MB
What is important to know about the new appointment system:
Applicants cannot request a specific date of application – the scheduled date of appointment will be sent to the sender's email within three working days from the day the Consulate received the request.
A request with missing or extra information is subject to rejection.
Rule: one application (letter) to the email address = one applicant (except for minor children under 15 years old travelling with a legal representative)
