Czech Visa Application Centre in Pune Inaugurated

Date: 24 March 2017, Venue: Pune

Ambassador of the Czech Republic to the Republic of India Milan Hovorka with his wife Jarmila inaugurated new Czech Visa Application Centre in Pune on March 24th, 2017. The Czech Republic has now a dozen visa application centres across India where people intending to travel to the Czech Republic can submit their application for Schengen Visa.



To make Czech visa application facilities more accessible for residents of Pune and its neighbourhood the Embassy of the Czech Republic and company VFS Global have launched a Czech Republic Visa Application Centre in the city’s well-connected and easily accessible area, Viman Nagar.

The centre is a part of the modern Joint Visa Application Centre that houses 26 diplomatic missions under one roof.


The Czech Visa Application Centre was inaugurated by H.E. Mr. Milan Hovorka, Ambassador of the Czech Republic to India, at a ceremony held on 24 March 2017. The inauguration was also attended by other personalities.

Over the last few months, VFS Global has set up centres in 11 other cities in India to increase accessibility to visa services for applicants across the country. Applicants earlier had to travel to either Mumbai or Delhi to apply for Czech Republic visas.


Key features of the centre include:

  • Convenient and central location
  • Skilled staff well-versed with the local language to handle applications and queries
  • Extended operating hours enabling visitors to submit applications at their time of convenience
  • 100% secure handling of passports, documents and personal information
  • Doorstep delivery of passports
  • Dedicated website for easy access to information including visa categories, requirements, checklist, applicable fees, visa status update
