Do U.S. Citizens Need Visa for Czech Republic?

Those who do need a Czech Republic Visa in order to enter the Czech Republic include those who are staying longer than 90 days or those who will be working or studying in the country. In order to obtain a visa, travelers should fill out and submit their application to the nearest Czech Republic Embassy or Consulate at least three to four months before their planned departure. Travelers should not leave for the Czech Republic without having a valid visa if one is required. Otherwise, they could be denied entry to the country, and the US Embassy cannot intervene on their behalf.
