As a full-time student, you should apply for a long-term residence permit (for the purpose of studies). The visa application should cost you 2 500 CZK. Here you can check the general requirements for visa applicants from the Ministry of Interior.

How long does it take?

Once you submit the visa application at the Czech Embassy it might take up to 90 days before your visa is issued. Most of the time it really takes 60-90 days.

What documents will you get from us

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

  • the accommodation contract,
  • admission letter,
  • confirmation of your studies (with the study program and dates),
  • payment confirmation (proof that you have paid the first year tuition fees) – this document is not required so sometimes we just send it scanned in an email,
  • hard copy of the entrance exam result letter (only students who did the entrance exam from 1st August 2019 onwards),
  • hard copy of the nostrification certificate (in case we assisted with that).
Travel health insurance

All incoming degree students must arrange travel health insurance with VZP cooperating with Mendel University. 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 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 via Regime student

Booking an 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, except for Regime student. Please check whether your country is on the list of the Ministry.

What is the Regime student?

It is a program allowing you to get visa appointment date without the need to book it yourself if you meet the requirements of the ministry. Please note this regime student is applicable only for those, who finish the whole admission process. (entrance exams, nostrification, first-year tuition fee and accommodation deposit payment)

If your name is on the list it might enable you to get the appointment without the need to book it yourself, however, it is not a guarantee that you will be chosen.

Please note with the participation at the regime student you are agreeing your personal data such as full name, date of birth, passport number and phone number are shared with the respective offices at the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Interior Affairs and Ministry of International Affairs.

How does it work?

The university sends every month to the Ministry of Education of the Czech Republic a list of students who are admitted to 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 to book 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 be nominated?

Since 1st December 2023, Ministry of Education has implemented new rules for nomination. Nominees must fulfil all the following conditions:

  1. Entrance exams
    • organized by the university you are applying to
  2. Ability to study in English – you must have any of the following evidences
    • a) English language certificate (English FCE certificate (grade B, C), BEC Vantage (grade B, C), BULATS score 60-74, CLB/CELPIP 6-7, CAEL 60, IELTS levels 5-6, TOEFL 87-109.)
    • b) Medium of Instruction in English or English proficiency letter
    • c) Transcript of records with a proven medium of instruction on it (on the transcript of records is written your study was held in English) If you don’t obtain one of the above mentioned, the faculty might organize English exam for you after finishing the admission process (entrance exams, nostrification, tuition fee payment, accommodation deposit payment)
  3. Study gap less than 3 years
    • You can be nominated only if you have less than 3 years from graduation. (The last school you studied).

If a student doesn’t fulfill all the conditions of the regime student, he/she cannot be nominated and need to book the appointment by himself/herself.
