Visa and immigration
To start off, we suggest that you consult the following website where you can find crucial information concerning visas/residence permits etc.
The full official name of the “Immigration Office” is: “The Department For Asylum And Migration Policy (OAMP)”. On the following pages, we decided to write “Immigration Office” to make this information clearer.
Note: "The Foreign Police" is a seperate department whose tasks and missions are different from those of the Immigration Office.
Below you can find some helpful information about the Visa process and the documents you are required to submit with the visa application.
We suggest you apply for a Long-term residence permit for study purposes for citizens from non-EU countries. The right place to apply for the permit is at the Czech Embassy in your country, before coming to the Czech Republic.
