Advisory to Indian Students in the Czech Republic

Indian students are advised to take due diligence and caution before enrolling for studies in any University/college/school(s) in the Czech Republic. They must ascertain complete credentials of the relevant institution before enrolment/payment of fee and are advised not to fall in trap of fraudulent institutions and false claims. The Embassy advises that Indian students should enroll themselves in recognized educational institutions. A list of recognized University/college/schools in the Czech Republic is available at website http://www.msmt.cz/ministerstvo/odkazy/vysoke-skoly?lang=1

On arrival in Prague the enrolled students must register themselves with the Interior Ministry of the Czech Republc within 72 hours and obtain necessary long-term visa for their studies. The students must always keep their passport and visas valid at all times.

The Czech Interior Ministry has made arrangements to facilitate the visa extension and Indian students can note and follow these guidelines:

  •   Interior Ministry has opened a Student Visa Centre at Hladkov 682/9, Prague 6, 169 00. The office exclusively deals with foreign students. Indian students applying for extension of visa can visit this centre after making an appointment with the concerned official at Tel. No: 974820680. A website www.frs.gov.cz/en has recently been launched by the Ministry in which a student has to create an account for login. He can then interact with them with regard to his extension of visa/make appointment.

  •   For renewal of long-term residence permit for the first time, students should submit their application in person after making appointment 3 months in advance from the expiry date of visa. However, according to local laws, the applications period, which starts 3 months before the expiry of visa, ends 14 days before the expiry of visa and applications cannot be submitted thereafter.

  •  After making an appointment at the office, the students need to take following documents:

  1. Duly filled application form with the copy of the passport

  2. Confirmation letter from University/ College

  3. Accommodation confirmation

  4. Proof of financial support (bank statement)

  5. Health insurance

  •  Students visiting this office do not need any interpreter as the staff can easily communicate in English

  •  After submission of application, extension of visa takes 2/3 weeks

  •  Indian students must note that the extension of long-term visa is done by the Ministry of Interior and not

  • by the Foreign Police.

Indian students can use this facility for extension of their visa in the Czech Republic.
