Visas and Residence permits - English version


Please note that the Czech Republic and France are member states of Schengen area.

If you want to visit the Czech Republic for a maximum of 90 days, you may need a short-stay Schengen visa. This depends on your nationality.

The short-stay Schengen visa (type “C”) allows you to stay in the Schengen area including the Czech Republic for a maximum of 90 days within a 180-day period. However, your visa is valid for a specific period. This period may be shorter than 90 days.

If you stay in France, we recommend you to study the articles  "Étranger en France : visa de court séjour et de transit Schengen" and "Visa de long séjour pour la France" on the web site Service-Public.fr.

Please read also the article "How to read the visa sticker".

In case of any doubt, please contact your prefecture in France or a French consulate abroad that issued your visa.
