Reminder to Intl´ Students to check validity of their Visas/Permits in CR

Dear students,

If you plan to leave the CR for your winter break and return only for the Spring Semester, we recommend that you:

  • Check the validity of your current long-stay visa or residence permit card so that you are sure that you can travel out of CR and return before the visa/RP expires.

  • If your current long-stay visa/RP card is valid until Summer 2022, you can travel with it and you can discard this reminder. 

  • If your long-stay visa/RP card expires in January 2022, don’t forget to apply for its extension by submitting all the required documents before you leave.
    At the same time, you will have to ask the Interior Ministry’s office to issue a bridge visa for you so that you are able to travel and re-enter CR in January-February 2022

  • If your application for long-stay visa/RP card extension has still been in process and you will not have a new card before the date of your planned departure, you will have to ask the Interior Ministry’s office to issue a bridge visa for you so that you are able to travel and re-enter CR in January-February 2022.
    At the same time, we recommend you keep checking your application status at https://frs.gov.cz/en/ioff/application-status and as soon as it is approved, to schedule a biometric appointment after your expected return to CR, calling the Ministry’s Client Center at https://frs.gov.cz/node/2175120.

  • Please note that if you fail to apply or return to CR before the expiry date on your long-stay visa, residence permit card or bridge visa, you may have no other choice for prolongation of your stay in CR than to apply for a new long-stay visa at the Czech Consulate in your home country.

If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact the Student Affairs/International Students Office at internationaloffice@unyp.cz.
