ERASMUS and the Fulbright scholarship programme

Foreign nationals applying for a long-term visa (including those extending their residence period on a long-term visa) or for an extension of a long-term residence permit for the purpose of studies within the Erasmus scholarship programme, do not have to submit proof of travel medical insurance pursuant to § 180j of the Act on the Residence of Foreign Nationals. It is neither necessary to submit it at the embassy prior to affixing the long-term visa, nor when applying inside the Czech Republic.

Foreign nationals applying for a long-term visa (including an extension of permitted time of stay on a long-term visa) or a long-term residence permit or its extension for the purpose of studies as scholars or interns of the Fulbright educational exchange program are not obliged to show proof of travel medical insurance as stipulated by § 180j of the Act on the residence of Foreign Nationals - not when receiving a long-term visa for the purpose of collecting a residence permit issued by a Czech embassy nor when applying in the territory. When applying for a long-term visa or long-term residency, the Czech Fulbright Commission will issue a “Confirmation of funds for stay and of the purpose of stay”, which will be attached to the visa/residence application. Nonetheless, family members of Fulbright Program scholars are not exempt from the requirement to show proof of travel medical insurance.
