The new system to reserve appointments for long term visa applications is in place from November 23, 2017.

The Consulate General – Consular section, upon receiving a valid request, confirms the appointment via e-mail. Appointments are granted exclusively according to the order of the incoming e-mails in the mailbox.

Do not send repetitive e-mail orders but wait till you receive the answer. E-mail orders are not processed immediately. Also do not send any inquiries or similar kind of correspondence to this e-mail. This e-mail box is just for long-term visa appointment orders.

Long term visa/long term residence permit - appointment registration system

The appointment is necessary to arrange in advance, by email to the following e-mail address:  visa_istanbul@mzv.cz

Fundamental rule: one e-mail/one applicant.

There is an exception for an under-age child who is applying for any type of long visa together with their legal representative. Only the parents can write their names in the e-mail and information how many children and which age will be applying together with the parents.

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