The purpose of „STUDIES“
An application for a long term residence can be filed at a Czech Embassy abroad.
Long-term residence permit for the purpose of study is intended for foreigners who will study in the Czech Republic for a period longer than three months in a study program longer than one year.
Upon request of the administrative body the applicant also submits:
If the insurance is taken out abroad, an officially certified translation into the Czech language of the insurance contract and the general insurance conditions shall also be submitted at the same time. The proof of premium payment shall also be provided upon request.
An application for a long-term residence permit for the purpose of “studies” is processed within 60 days of it being filed.
The validity of the long-term residence permit for the purpose of “studies” in the Czech Republic (§ 42d) can be repeatedly extended, but no longer than by 2 years, if it was issued for the purpose of “studies” at a higher education establishment .
More information can be found at this links: Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic or the Ministry of the Interior of the Czech Republic.

The project „Student Mode“ is the concept of visa facilitation for students-foreigners from selected third countries who are admitted to study at Universities in the Czech Republic. The function of Student Mode is to accelerate access to the relevant embassy for an applicant seeking a long-term visa/residence permit for the purpose of studies. Placing an applicant on the list of the Student Mode does not guarantee a positive processing of the visa application.
