Partial resumption of Visa Services in Israel as of 01.08.2020 - update as of 08.12.2020

The scale of types and purposes of visa applications that the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Tel Aviv currently accepts is given by currently valid Protective Measure of the Ministry of Health of the Czech Republic.

Visa services resumption is taking place as the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic continues.

We therefore ask for applicants´ cooperation in observing hygienic rules when visiting consulates. Applicants are required to use hands´ disinfectionwear face masksand maintain at least 2 meters distance. The number of persons who can simultaneously enter the consulate premises is limited.

We also ask for applicants´ understanding that the amount of applications the Embassy can accept and process while observing the preventive hygienic measures cannot approximate the amount of applications accepted and processed before the state of emergency.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs aims to enable arrival of those foreign nationals who need visas to stay in the Czech Republic. However, at the same time, it is not be possible to accommodate all applicants in the midst of the pandemics while observing the preventive hygienic measures. Consulates publish the information about the number of applications they currently have the capacity to accept and process on their websites.

The extent of the visa services currently provided remains limited. The extent of the visa services that consulates are currently allowed to provide is anchored in the Protective Measure of the Ministry of Health valid from 03.12.2020.2020.
