Applicants for a long-term stay of over 90 days can submit the application and all required documents in person at the Czech Embassy.
Students arriving for a period longer than 90 days apply for a long-term residence permit for study purposes.
After receiving a letter of acceptance from one of the five top universities in Prague, students have to apply for a student visa at the Czech Embassy in their country of origin, or in a country with a Czech Consulate. The process of acquiring a student visa takes 60–90 days to be finalised.
