Czech Republic receives record number of visa applications

Prague, Czech Republic – Interest for a visa to the Czech Republic reached a record high last year, according to official data.

Over 700,000 applications for Czech visa in 2018

According to figures released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, last year was a record year in terms of visa applications to the Czech Republic.

Czech diplomatic authorities recorded 722,000 applications for visas to the Czech Republic, according to the annual diplomatic yearbook released by the Czech Foreign Affairs Ministry.

Short-term Schengen visas account for vast majority of applications

Schengen visas, which give access not only to the Czech Republic but also to the 25 other European Schengen countries for a maximum of up to 90 days, accounted for the vast majority of visas delivered by Czech embassies throughout the world last year (663,000).

The number of applications for long-term and permanent residence, although representing only a fraction of the total deliveries, increased by more than 50% compared to the previous year, reaching 37,000 in 2018.
