Resumption of visa services

Effective August 23, 2021, full range of our visa services is available only to applicants who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and who, at the time of requesting a visa appointment, present a scan/plain photocopy of their CDC-issued COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card. The original vaccination card must also be presented during the visa interview.

In observance of pandemic measures that include distancing and masking, all in-person visits to the Consulate General are strictly by previous appointment only. No walk-in visitors are attended.

Please follow the mandatory procedure for requesting an appointment to visit the Visa section of our Consulate General, chapter HOW TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT, sections A, B, or C.

The Consulate General has introduced and enforces precautionary measures for visitors. Importantly, in order to visit our Visa Section, you need to wear a clean cloth face covering that securely covers both your nose and mouth.


While extraordinary and protective measures of the Czech Ministry of Health are in effect, each fully vaccinated Schengen visa applicant must complete a special declaration.

After the declaration is completed, duly signed and bears the date of signing, the Consulate General will accept the wet-signed original, or a high-quality scan made from the original.

Applicants must submit the declaration to the Consulate General, during a Schengen visa interview, together with the original and one plain photocopy of their CDC-issued COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card.




Effective September 30, 2021, applicants who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or who do not present their CDC-issued COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card, can file the following applications at our Consulate General.

  • Schengen visa only for:
    • family members of Czech/EU citizens with residence in the Czech Republic
