Visa requirements

The students incoming from the EU countries do not need visa!

Health Insurance and Health Care

All incoming students must hold health insurance. The Czech Republic normally recognises health insurance valid within the EU. Nevertheless, you should check with your insurance office whether this is the case with your particular health insurance. You should also take out additional insurance covering hospital care, if necessary. If you are not a member of EU country, you have to pay all emergency fees in advance. Ask your insurance company for additional information. There are no vaccination requirements.
