Effective 1 November 2017, the Visapoint system has closed and is no longer available for booking appointments for visa or residence permit applications.

All appointments available until 30 November 2017 have already been booked, and remain valid.

A new system of registration to apply for a visa or residence permit, to start on 1 December 2017, is currently being prepared. More details are expected to be released on 24 November 2017 via the websites of the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Embassies and Consulates General.

Action Items

  • Employers of foreign nationals requiring visas or residence permits for the Czech Republic should allow for delays while the new appointment-booking system is implemented.
