The Consular Section handles applications primarily by mail. Only requests that are of an urgent nature and cannot be processed by mail are handled during a personal visit.

The request for a face-to-face meeting must be sent by email, which must include following:

Your request must be sent to the Consular Section email address cs.ny@mzv.cz. You will receive a confirmation with the date and time of your visit and the name of the consular officer in reply.

The security guard will not allow access into the premises of the Consulate General without a confirmation of the appointment. Therefore, showing the confirmation e-mail (printed or on device) with a scheduled date of the visit at the lobby upon arrival is required.

We kindly ask all applicants with confirmed appointment with the consular officer to wear masks/face coverings or respirators and gloves when entering the premises of the Consulate General of the Czech Republic. Entry into the premises of the Consulate General without covering your nose and mouth using mask/face covering or respirator is not allowed.

Documents presented to the consulate department do not insert into a plastic/vinyl sheet protector, but use a paper envelope or paper folder instead.

Upon entering the premises of the Consulate General we urge to use a hand sanitizer available at the reception.

Please note that processing of your application may require a longer time than usual.
