General Visa Information

Since 2007 the Czech Republic has been a member of both the European Union and the Schengen area.

  • Citizens of EU countries can freely enter the Czech Republic

  • Citizens of the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Israel, Japan and many other countries can stay in the Czech Republic for up to 90 days without a visa. Other nationalities should check current visa requirements with the Czech embassy in their home country prior to departure.

  • The Czech Republic is a member of the EU’s common border and customs area, the Schengen Zone, which imposes its own 90-day visa-free travel limit on visitors from outside the EU. In practice, this means your time in the Czech Republic counts against your stay within the Schengen Zone as a whole – plan your travel accordingly.
