Residence and visa – Visa for a stay of up to 365 days (short-term)

Are you going to stay in the Czech Republic for up to 1 year?

Short-term residence is residence in the Czech Republic for a maximum of 90 days within each period of 180 days. The period of residence is calculated from the first day of entering the Schengen Area and is for all Schengen States.

Exemption from visa requirements does not apply to stays for the purpose of working. Citizens of who are coming from third countries residing in the Czech Republic visa-free are not allowed to use short-term residence to carry out gainful activity as seasonal employment. They must arrange a short-term visa for employment for this purpose.
