For the visa application you will receive from us the following documents:

  • the accomodation contract,
  • admission letter,
  • confirmation of your studies (with the study program and dates),

Both companies have the COVID-19 related situations already covered in the complex travel health insurance. This insurance is usually required once your visa is approved and you are about to get the visa confirmation in your passport/etc. In some countries you will need to have the travel health insurance while submitting the admission documents for visa, see the information at the embassy in your country. You can find information about the health travel insurance companies cooperating with Mendel university here.

Booking an appointment & Regime student

Booking the appointment for the visa interview can be quite a challenge in some countries.The appointments at the embassy cannot be booked by a third party, with the exception of Regime student list.

This list works in the following countries (at their respective Czech embassies): Ghana, Burkina Faso, Guinea-Bissau, Liberia, Ivory Coast, Sierra Leone, Togo, Nigeria, Benin, Chad, Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea, Niger, Democratic Republic of Congo, Republic of Congo, Gabon, Central African Republic, Ukraine, Turkey, Russia, Philippines, Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Republic of Palau, Republic of Nauru, Vietnam, China, Serbia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, India, Bangladesh, Maldives, Nepal, Sri-Lanka, Bhutan, Egypt, Azerbaijan, Colombia, Costa Rica, Panama, Barbados, Venezuela, Dominica, Grenada, Saint Lucia, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Vincent and Grenadines or Trinidad and Tobago

The Regime student works from the 15th February till the 10th December each year. There is a pause in the program from the 11th December till the 14th February each year which the government uses for the evaluation of the program.

If your name is on the list it might enable you to get the appointment without the need of booking it yourself.

How does it work?

The university sends every month to the Ministry of Education of the Czech Republic a list of students who are accepted for the studies and who already have their nostrification certificates. The Ministry then chooses some of the students who will get the appointment, without the need of booking it through the booking system. The university is not able to prioritize any students for selection and has no say in the selection process. Every month we have no more than 10 candidates out of about 20-30 chosen.
Once the Ministry of Education chooses you and you are called by the embassy you have only one chance. If the embassy turns you down because you did not have your documents ready we cannot put you on the list again and you have to get the appointment by yourself.

So we still advise the students to try to book the appointments themselves, because it cannot be guaranteed that you will be chosen by the Ministry.

How to higher the chances of being chosen by the Ministry of Education
  1. For the September intake have all the admission documents before May, which means applying during winter!
  2. For February intake – have all your admission documents in October, which means applying during summer!
