Applying for a visa
STUDENT MODE – a concept for facilitating the visa procedure for a specific group of students from third countries.
On 22 May 2017, the Government of the Czech Republic approved the project "Student Mode". The aim of the Student Mode is to facilitate the visa/stay process for selected students-foreigners who are admitted to study at Universities in the Czech Republic and at the same time they are enrolled in the Student Mode.
Realization of Student Mode:
- The university selects the students and submits the application in electronic form to the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports.
- When a student is enrolled in the Mode, the relevant Embassy contacts the student and sets the date for submission of the application.
- If a student does not attend or apply for a long-term visa for a study that does not meet the eligibility requirements, he / she will not receive a substitute term but will have to apply again for inclusion at the Mode.
- In the case of an incomplete application for a long-term visa for the study purposes, this application will not be accepted on grounds of inadmissibility.
- In the case, the student will submit an incomplete application for a long-term residence permit for study purposes, the applicant will be asked to add missing data/documents.
