Visas

Visas are not required for citizens of most European countries, permanent residents of a Schengen state, as well as for a series of other countries. If you need a visa, a personal invitation letter may be necessary (see annex documents right below), which you may request from the Organizing Committee. Conditions such as the remaining validity of your passeport may also apply. Here are some documents to assist you. We leave it under your responsibility that you check that these conditions still hold at the time of your departure.

  • Full legal information about entering Czech republic from the Czech embassy. [Links coming soon]
  • Do you need a visa?: details from the Czech Embassy. Please check carefully that the dates for the visa include the full range of the School!
  • Holders of permanent residence permits issued by a member Schengen state can enter without a visa. The residence permit and passport should be valid at least 90 days after the entry date.
