Visa duty

The Czech Republic is a member state of Schengen Agreement.
Please ask your nearest Embassy or Consulate of the Czech Republic for the conditions of issuing the Schengen Visa.

The list of Czech Embassies and Consulates worldwide can be found at


Citizens of the country which have a visa duty to enter the Schengen Area should contact the nearest Czech Embassy or Consulate for conditions concerning issuing of Schengen Visa. The conditions may differ from country to country in details. In most cases you will need an "Official Invitation" from the Czech Republic to submit it together with your Schengen Visa Application. 
A citizen of distant countries (and so called third countries) must be informed that it is not possible to issue the Visa here in the Czech Republic upon your arrival, nor in other European countries for strict safety reasons! You must ask for Visa in the country where you reside or at the Embassy where your country belongs.
The Official Invitation has a special form and has to be stamped by the Foreign Police Dept. of the Czech Republic. We, the organizers of MADI Fair, are ready to arrange such a document for the fair participants coming from visa duty countries.
