Visa Charles University. The procedure for obtaining a long-term stay in the Czech Republic – a residence permit is regulated by the legal acts of the Czech Republic. Consideration of documents for this type of visa may be suspended if the OAMP (deals with the issuance of long-term visas) requires the provision of new, or requiring additional certification, documents or calls the student for an additional interview.

The term for consideration of documents for long-term residence (residence permit in the Czech Republic) is 60 days, however, in some cases, the review procedure may take 3-5 months, so we recommend applying for this type of visa only if there is a sufficient temporary reserve.
