Visa for the Purpose of Collecting a Residence Permit

In some cases, for instance when changing a passport in the country of origin after or if the validity of a long-term visa/residence permit 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, then to return/enter the Czech Republic, you will need a visa for the purpose of receiving a residence permit.

For this you must fill in the Long-term visa form, add your photograph, no other requirements are necessary.

Applications are accepted without a prior appointment in working hours of the Consular Department. We recommend to submit the applications on working Fridays between 9:00 - 11:00 AM.

This visa is conferred ex officio in the shortest time possible.

The visa is issued with a validity of 6 months and it entitles the foreigner to a residence for a maximum stay of 60 days. After travelling to the Czech Republic, it is necessary to report to the MOI within 3 working days for the subsequent acts.

The embassy will request you submit proof of medical travel insurance and the confirmation of an entity receiving in the territory of the Czech Republic a third country citizen for the purpose of economic activity or educational aktivity.
A third country citizen submits this confirmation along with an application or prior to marking the visa in the travel document at the latest, at the respective Embassy or Consulate of the Czech Republic in accordance with § 31 para. 3 letter b) of Act. No. 326/1999 Coll., on the Residence of Foreign Nationals in the Czech Republic, and on the amendment of certain acts, as amended.
