Visa is a permit to enter, stay, and leave the territory of the Czech Republic or the Schengen area, provided that the terms and conditions stipulated by the Czech law and/or the European Community laws have been met. All applicants must meet all the required conditions to be granted a visa. Every alien requiring a visa travelling with an individual travel document must possess his/her own visa.
Individual visa must be held by a child below 15 years of age not in possession of his/her own travel document and registered in the travel document of a parent/legal guardian. Two visa stickers will be affixed to the passport. Such a child shall file through his/her parent/legal guardian a separate visa application, supported by the prescribed supporting documents.
Spouses travelling together on the basis of a family passport shall each file a separate visa application and support it with the prescribed supporting documents.
