  • Students who are nationals of European Union, the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland do not need VISA to enter Lithuania or Czech Republic.
  • If you hold any other nationality you will be subject to immigration control in Lithuania and Czech Republic and may need a visa. As Regional development and Governance is jointly delivered programme you need to ensure that you possess access for both countries, Lithuania and Czech Republic.

Students from non EU countries can enter The Czech Republic when holding one of the following documents:

  • Schengen visa or residence permit/visa issued by another Schengen state (visa/TRP allows one to stay for the period indicated in the visa-TRP but not exceeding three months in any six-month period);
  • National multi-entry visa (visa permits student to stay in Czech Republic for up to 12 months);                                                           
  • Temporary residence permit (TRP allows one to reside in the country for the entire period of studies, but has to be replaced annually).

Students from non EU countries, who want to enter Czech Republic, can get information about visa application procedure at the Czech embassies or consulates in their home countries or they can consult the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic.
