Suspension of Visa Processing – Update

 

1. As of March 14, 2020, the Government of the Czech Republic has suspended acceptance and processing of visa applications, in accordance with Government Decision from March 12, 2020, no. 198, after declaring a state of emergency, in accordance with Government Decision from March 12, 2020, no. 194. The state of emergency has been extended until April 20, 2020, in accordance with Government Decision from April 9, 2020, no. 396.

2. Visa services currently remain suspended in accordance with the decisions stated above. Once the state of emergency will have been lifted, the visa applications acceptance at Czech consulates worldwide will resume gradually. It will take into consideration not only the epidemiological situation in the Czech Republic, but also primarily in individual destinations. The primary consideration will be given to prevention of the coronavirus spread so as not to jeopardize the currently favorable epidemiological situation in the Czech Republic.

3. Further specific information will be available here in time.
