Expedited procedure for some long-stay visa applicants (medical reasons only)

(This article expired 23.10.2013.)

Citizens of selected countries who suffer various medical conditions and diseases may apply for a Czech long-stay visa for the purpose of "medical reasons" in an expedited procedure.

The expedited processing of a long-stay visa application applies to applicants who:

Applicants must submit their visa applications with all the regular requirements, with the following exceptions:

  • no proof of purpose of stay is required from the applicant
  • proof of financial funds need not be translated in Czech if submitted in English

The project also applies to accompanying persons (at most two) if the patient's medical condition requires their constant assistance in the Czech Republic.

Please contact our embassy or consulate general in Toronto to learn more about the procedure.
