New Long Term Visa and Residence Fees

On 31st July 2019, a legislative update of Act on the residence of foreign nationals came into force bringing with it changes to the procedural rules and fees levied for long-term visa applications.

Most notable changes are as follows:

·         Digital documents are no longer accepted even if delivered to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ databox by a University in the Czech Republic,

·         Student visas are no longer free of charge. 

·         Fees for visas and residence cards for purposes which involve commercial or employment activities were increased to 5000 CZK per application

·         Residence permit fees increased to 2500 CZK per application for noncommercial purposes

Fees related issues that remain unchanged are as follows:

·         Fee waivers for visas for certain nationals under bilateral agreements (e.g. Japan)

·         No fees are levied for DV/R visas in case a biometric permit has been lost, stolen, damaged or expired

This affects all applications submitted on or after 31st July 2019. Applications submitted prior to this date are not affected by the change and are processed according to the rules at the time of submission of the application.
