How to register for appointment - to apply for long-term visa or long-term residency permits

New system for ordering applicants to apply for long-term visa and permits was established from 1 December 2017 and is still in force.

Applicants from provinces which belong under the consular jurisdiction of the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Beijing must send their e-mail with relevant information first. More information below.

Starting from 1st December 2017, all applicants who would like to apply for long-term visa and long-term residency permit through the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Beijing, must first apply for an appointment via email: visa_beijing@mzv.cz.

The rule: one applicant = one e-mail

Only one accepted exception is for an under-age child, who is applying for any type of long visa together with his/her legal representative. Only parents can write their names in the e-mail and inform how many children and which age will be applying together with them.

E-mail requests for an appointment date are sorted to one unlimited line by the date/hour/ minute and second of delivery to the mail box.

The Consular and Visa Section of the Embassy is not authorised in any way to interfere, change the position or influence the position of applicant's registration. Set appointments are fixed and they cannot be changed, either by the applicant or the Embassy.

Applicants can not apply for a specific appointment date for submitting the application. The exact appointment date for submitting the application will be notified by an e-mail to the applicant.

Requests for change of the application date or the type of visa will not be answered by the Consular and Visa Section of the Embassy. If the applicant is not able to come to the Consular and Visa Section of the Embassy in the previously scheduler and reserved date and time, he/she must send another request to reserve a completely new term by a new e-mail.

E-mail request for the appointment has to be written in English or Czech language and in the first line (subject) must be clearly written the applicant's first and last name + type of visa or residence permit. The e-mail must further contain the following obligatory data: 

- Applicant's first and last name

- Type of visa or residence permit the applicant is applying for

- Contact details of the applicant (e-mail, telephone)

- Passport number

- Scanned copy of the travel document data page - only the page with photograph of the applicant! (only in the following formats: PDF, DOC, JPEG, JPG and TIFF)

- Scanned copy of the document, showing the purpose of the stay in the Czech Republic - usually confirmation of admission to a university / reason: Study, working contract / reason: Employment card, Business Register statement / reason: Business, marriage certificate / reason: Family reunion, etc. --- please note that only first page is required for that purpose!!! (and only in the following format: PDF, DOC, JPEG, JPG and TIFF).

Without these information and attachments your email will not be processed further and your appointment will not be completed!

Applicants with a valid appointment for long-term visa and long-term residency permit will be able to apply in person on appointed date and time at the Consular and Visa Section of the Czech Republic in Beijing.

When you receive the email confirmation of your appointment please print it and bring it with you.
