Visa

Do I need a visa to go the the Czech Repulic/Schengen area?

Go to https://www.schengenvisainfo.com/who-needs-schengen-visa/ to check whether you need a visa based on your citizenship.

Which type of Visa should I apply for? How?

Prague: You will need to apply for a short-term Schengen Visa (up to 90 days) to join our program. Please search 'Embassy of the Czech Republic in [your country]' and visit the "Visa and Consular Information" page to book an appointment. We recommend that you do so well in advance. ECCEDU will issue you an invitation letter for your Visa application.

Warsaw: You will need to apply for a short-term Schengen Visa (up to 90 days) to join our program. Please searching 'Embassy of Poland in [your country]' and visit the "Visa and Consular Information" page to make an appointment. We recommend that you do so well in advance. ECCEDU will issue you an invitation letter for your Visa application.

New York: You will need to apply for the short-term J1 Visa to join our program. We will recommend a third party site for you to use (at your own expense), but you can use a different site. After we receive your payment, ECCEDU will issue you an invitation letter for your Visa application.

When should I apply for the visa?

We suggest you start doing research from the official embassy website and check the available dates for a visa appointment first, even you haven't got all documents ready. The Visa processing time varies in each country, but in our experience it can take from from 5 working days to 60 days.

Can I get the invitation letter before I pay the full program fees?

Unfortunately, our invitation letter must mention that you have paid for the program in full; embassies care about this deeply because they want to make sure that people granted a visa are really coming for our program. We will refund most of your program fees if your Visa application is declined by the embassy.
