Schengen Visa


The Schengen visa allows you to stay in the Czech Republic for the visa period and to cross internal borders of the other member states of the Schengen Agreement.

The Schengen Agreement stipulates for a Schengen visa to be applied for at the Consulate of the destination country.

Common Schengen visas are valid on the territory of the following states: Austria, Belgium, Hungary, Germany, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Greece, Estonia, Iceland, Italy, Spain, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Finland, Sweden and Switzerland.

Under the Visa Code, the member state of the Schengen Agreement  whose territory is the only destination of a travel (travels) is authorised to review and make a decision on a visa application.

If an applicant intends to visit a few member states of the Schengen Area, in order to obtain a Schengen visa, he/she should contact the Consulate of the country where the applicant plans to stay the greatest number of days.

If the number of days of stay in all the countries is equal, the Consulate of the first-entry country must be approached.

Dear applicants, please note that the Visa Centre of the Czech Republic only accepts documents for a short-term Schengen visa (Category C), without expedition, from:
