The Regional Assistance Centers for Ukraine (KACPU) have been established to register Ukrainian citizens arriving in the Czech Republic due to the war in Ukraine. A list of centers can be found here.

Conditions of stay

You can stay in the Czech Republic under a visa-free regime for 90 days.

If you are staying with friends, you need to register with the Police of the Czech Republic. In other cases, the landlord will check you in (but, just in case, remind him of this).

If you would like to join daily life and start working, you can apply for a special type of long-stay visa issued by the Department of Asylum and Migration Policy (MV OAMP) of the Ministry of the Interior. You will then be able to find a job and apply for a work permit at the Employment Center (Úrad práce).

For more information about the conditions of entry and long-term stay in the Czech Republic, read on this website.
