Applications will be processed chronologically according to the time of their receipt. Requests received before capacity will be answered by automated email and then processed within 7 days. Applications that meet all the requirements received above the capacity limit will receive an automatic reply about this fact and the date will not be assigned to them due to the capacity being filled.


The assigned dates are immutable.


For e-mails that will have information other than the passport number in the subject of the message and for e-mails that will be delivered to the Employment_Istanbul@mzv.cz e-mail box before the start of the order (i.e. before the specified day and time) and multiple emails sent by one applicant will not be considered and will be considered invalid.


Each applicant can only send 1 email. If one applicant sends multiple e-mails on a given date, he/she will be automatically excluded from this ordering date, even if the e-mails are sent from multiple e-mail addresses. Notification of rejection will be sent only to the first detected duplicate e-mail of the applicant. In the event that it is established that the applicant has already submitted an application for a long-term visa or long-term/permanent residence in the past months and this application is pending, his e-mail will also be excluded from further processing and considered invalid.
