In the framework of the system for registration for appointments outside the Qualified Employee Program (Electronic Draw) the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Manila informs that a new registration for appointments outside the Qualified Employee Program is going to take place on February 24, 2023 (Friday) in the VFS Global Visa Center.

The Embassy will inform in advance on this webpage of the next date of the registration (for the period July – September 2023 and any other coming quarters of a year).

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs will draw, in the framework of a electronic draw of the processed registrations, 25 applicants out of those processed registrations, should the number of registration be higher than 25. The quota of 25 applicants per quarter is based on the decision of the Government of the Czech Republic for the yearly quotas of the Employee Cards applications outside the Qualified Employee Program. Only those registrations that fulfill the conditions set below will be admitted to the lottery of registrations.

  7. The applicant will receive a receipt confirming payment of the registration fee. Aside from the unique number of receipt there will be also a unique registration number that will be assigned for the electronic draw. Paying the registration fee does not mean that the applicant can claim receiving the confirmed appointment.

The Embassy will also make public the registration numbers that were not successful in the electronic draw.

  9. Should the applicant not come to apply on the day of application, the Embassy will not provide any new appointment instead. No matter the reason.

The Embassy would like to underline that the registration on February 24, 2023 does not guarantee that an applicant will get an appointment to apply for the Employee Card. Out of the registered applicants, only 25 applicants will be drawn in the framework of the electronic draw of processed registrations quarterly. Those applicants will be informed via the webpage of the Embassy about the date of Employee Card submission.

Embassy further informs that the Employee Card application submission does not guarantee receiving the visa. The applications are decided by the Ministry of Interior of the Czech Republic.

The above mentioned system is in accordance with the article 169f of the law number 326/1999 Coll. on the Stay of Foreigners on the Territory of the Czech Republic and Resolutions of the Supreme Administrative Court of the Czech Republic (for example resolution number Azs 153/2016 of May 30, 2017)
