Please be advised that visa requirements are subject to change and that visa procurement is the responsibility of the traveller and not On The Go Tours, therefore it is essential that you check current visa requirements with the embassy before travel. Please also ensure that your passport is valid for at least 3 months from your planned date of departure from the Czech Republic with at least two blank pages and your passport must have been issued within the last 10 years.
UK, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and USA passport holders do not require a visa for a stay of less than 90 days in any 180-day period.
For passport holders of other nationalities not included here, please check the Project Visa website for more information.
South African Residents
The Czech Republic is part of the borderless region known as the Schengen Area and South African residents require a Schengen visa in order to enter the Czech Republic. A passport valid for at least three months from your departure is required and a visa will only be issued if blank pages are available. Requirements for the procurement of a Czech Republic visa are subject to change but application requirements include round-trip travel itinerary specifying entry and exit dates from the Schengen state and proof of funds to support yourself during your stay (approximately $50 USD per day).
Visas are issued by the Czech Republic embassy in Pretoria though a Schengen visa application will only be accepted if the Czech Republic is the country of maximum stay. Should the duration of the stay be the same in several Schengen States, the Czech Republic must then be the first point of entry.
