How to file an application and long-term residence permit/long-term visa fees
The following text is an excerpt from the Information for schools and students provided by the Ministry of Interior of the Czech Republic.
According to § 178 of the ARFN a foreign national older than 15 years of age who is able to express his/her own will and is capable of acting independently is considered as legally competent.
The registration for filing an application for a long-term visa or an application for a long-term residence permit at the embassy is done by means of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs internet system VISAPOINT, if this system is available in the country concerned.
The embassy charges CZK 500 for accepting an application for a residence permit for the purpose of studies. The foreign national then pays CZK 2,500 for the residence card in the Czech Republic. Acceptance of an application for a long-term visa for the purpose of studies is exempt from a consular fee. For accepting an application for a long-term visa for the purpose of “other” the embassy charges CZK 2,500.
A foreign national is obliged to file an application for a long-term visa or long-term residence in person. In justified cases the embassy can waive this obligation.
