Amendments to Rules of Granting Visa to Foreigners

24. 11. 2015

An amendment to the Alien Act, which is likely to come to effect by the end of 2015, brings changes in the rules of granting Visa to foreigners in the Czech Republic. Currently, the validity of the long-term Visa does not exceed 6 months, a term which is to be increased twofold to one yearAlso, the present rules do not enable foreigners to apply for long-term residence permit extension sooner than in 120 days prior the previous visa validity expiry date, which, too, is to change; a premature application may be lodged prematurely provided that the applicant is able to provide sufficient explanation for doing so.

On the other hand, the Ministry of Internal Affairs assumes the authority to examine reliability of the data connected with the applicants' income whenever necessary; particularly the self-employed and those who work as members of statutory organ of business corporations are to be in the Ministry officials' centre of attention. The main reason for assuming these new powers is to eliminate the issuance of fictitious evidence of collecting financial means necessary for the stay.
