Visa requirements

Students from EU countries

If you come from an EU member country (or Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein or Switzerland), you are exempt from the student visa requirements. You are not required to have any additional medical insurance, although we highly recommend it.

Students from countries outside the EU

If you wish to enrol at Masaryk University, you must apply for a long-term visa (recommended) or residence permit for the purpose of studies. You have to file your application at the Embassy or Consulate General of the Czech Republic abroad, usually in your country of citizenship. Applications cannot be filed in the Czech Republic.

Please be advised that the application process for a long-term visa or residence permit for the purpose of study can take up to 60 days.

Student mode / Student regime

The project "Student Mode" is concept of visa facilitation for students from selected countries who have been accepted to study at universities in the Czech Republic. Students will be automatically placed after successfully passing the entrance exams to Masaryk University. Placing of an applicant on the list of the Student Mode does not guarantee a positive response to the visa application. If during the specified interview the student does not submit all the required documents they will automatically be removed from the Student Mode. The list of countries is being updated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Czech Republic, and currently includes coutries such as India, Vietnam, Nigeria, USA, Egypt, Ukraine etc.
