Prague, May 11 (CTK) – Czech diplomatic offices in 20 countries have resumed accepting applications for visas and temporary stays, which may be granted for work or family reunification at 28 Czech embassies and consulates around the world, the Foreign Ministry said today.

In mid-March, the Czech Republic stopped accepting applications for visas and temporary stays due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Now, people can ask for visas and temporary stays at Czech diplomatic offices in China, Vietnam, the USA, Serbia and Australia, for example, but not yet in Britain, Ukraine, Russia and Romania.

The limitations are still valid in the countries whose measures adopted against COVID-19 do not allow the submission of applications at Czech diplomatic offices.

People can only apply for visas and temporary stays, however, based on the purposes established by a Czech government decree issued on May 4.

People seeking seasonal jobs, those in government programs for health and social care personnel, as well as scientists and workers of critical infrastructure, are eligible for the entry to the Czech Republic.

Family reunification may also be a reason for a visa application if part of the family resides in the Czech Republic.
