You can also apply for a visa for the purpose  of collecting a residence permit - D/VR, if the validity of a long-term residence permit or visa expires in the course of proceedings on a legitimate newly filed application, or after approving applications for a long-term residence permit filed at an embassy, to return/enter the Czech Republic.

  • application form
  • new passport
  • photo
  • copy of the old passport and visa – if available

The application can be filed at the respective diplomatic mission of the Czech Republic during the office hours allocated for this purpose. Appointment registration through the Visapoint System is optional in this case.
