How to make an appointment for a long term visa or residence permit

It is mandatory to register to lodge an application for a long term visa or residence permit exclusively by sending an email to the following email address: visa_telaviv@mzv.cz

The rule of 1 email – 1 applicant applies and at the same time there is an exception for children under 15 years of age, who lodge their visa application together with their legal guardian. These children can be included in an email of the legal guardian.

Email requests will be sorted into one infinite line according to the date, hour, minute and second of the receipt of your email into the above mentioned email box.

The Embassy of the Czech Republic does not alter in any way the order in which the Embassy receives the emails, it does not change the sequence in which they arrived in any way possible. The request for change of date to lodge a long term visa application or residence permit application will be disregarded and not processed.
