Students from EU countries
If you come from an EU member country (or Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein or Switzerland), you are exempt from student visa requirements. You are not required to have any additional medical insurance, but we highly recommend arranging one.
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 studies can take up to 60 days.

Unless exempt due to citizenship or special circumstances (see if you are exempt), you must provide proof that you hold Czech medical insurance before the visa/residence permit is affixed to your travel document. The insurance must cover the entire period of your stay in the Czech Republic determined in accordance with the period your permit has been issued for. The insurance is provided by PVZP Insurance company. You can find more details on their official website.
STUDENTS FROM EU/EEA AND SWITZERLAND
Students from EU/EEA countries and Switzerland are exempt from student visa requirements. To enter the Czech Republic, EU students only need a valid passport or national ID card.
EU students have, however, a reporting duty after their arrival if the intended stay in the Czech Republic is longer than 30 days. In this situation, within 30 days of entering the Czech Republic, a student is required to report his/her presence to the Foreign Police Department in the location of his/her stay in the Czech Republic. This obligation does not apply if the person providing accommodation submits the registration forms on behalf of the student, i.e. in case of stays in student dormitories.
REGISTERING WITH THE CZECH FOREIGN POLICE
Registration at the Foreign Police Department is compulsory for all foreign nationals staying in the Czech Republic for more than 30 days. They must register within 3 days from the date of arrival to the country. Read more about this obligation here.
