Applicants for Schengen visas and long-term visas and residence permits for purposes of economic and education activities are required to submit document on fulfilling requirements against introduction of infectious disease.

 

When lodging a Schengen visa application, the document must be submitted upon lodging the application - presentation of the document is a prerequisite for further processing.

When lodging a long-term visa or residence permit application, the document must be submitted when picking up the visa, i.e. after its approval, not upon lodging the application.

 

The document is required when lodging the following applications:

 Schengen visa for the purpose of study

● Schengen visa for the purpose of employment

● Schengen visa for the purpose of seasonal employment

● Schengen visa for the purpose of scientific research

 Schengen visa for the purpose of culture

● Schengen visa for the purpose of sports

● Schengen visa for the purpose of training

 Schengen visa for the purpose of entrepreneurship

● Employee Card

● Blue Card

● Intra-Company Employee Transfer Card

● Long-term visa for the purpose of seasonal employment

● Long-term visa for the purpose of entrepreneurship

● Long-term visa for the purpose of study

● Long-term visa for the purpose of other - other educational activities

● Long-term visa for the purpose of training

● Long-term visa for the purpose of culture

● Long-term visa for the purpose of sports

● Special work visa

● Long-term residence permit for the purpose of study

● Long-term residence permit for the purpose of scientific research

 

The document should be issued by the receiving entity in the Czech Republic, i.e. employer or school (university). By issuing the document, the issuing party undertakes  to provide

● accommodation for the entire duration of stay, incl. a place where the foreign national can stay if a public health institution orders a quarantine,

 health care or a registered health care provider for the entire duration of stay,

 covering related expenditures, if not arranged otherwise (exception: this point does not pertain to holders of long-term residence permit),

 return to the country of origin in case the purpose of stay in the Czech Republic no longer applies (exception: this point does not pertain to holders of long-term residence permit).

 

The document doesn't need to be provided in an original – a scan of the document along with the printout of the email from the sending employer/institution is sufficient.
