      Visa and Residence Issues

      This section is intended for international students. Both those who need a visa in order to stay here as well as EU citizens. EU citizens should take a closer look at duties after arrival to the Czech Republic. The rest of the section is important mainly for visa students.


       

      Health insurance for International students

      All international students are required to hold some type of health insurance while staying in the Czech republic. In this section you will find detailed information on how to arrange your insurance, what is acceptable and how to find a doctor when you need one.

      If you are in need of accommodation, this is the section for you. There you will find different housing options we recommend, from dormitories to flats.
