Foreigners staying in Czechia with an expired visa or residence permit will not have to turn to the Foreign Police Department.

The Czech Republic closed its borders to all foreigners without permanent residence in the country in mid-March over the novel coronavirus pandemic, but allowed those who arrived earlier to stay even if their visa or residence permit expired.

Today, the ministry said that foreigners will be able to stay for 60 days following the end of the state of emergency in the country, now planned for May 17.

Once a person with an expired visa or permit decides to leave the country, they will receive an official stamp in their passport, confirming that their stay in Czechia was legal.
