Do I have to apply for a Czech Visa at an embassy or consulate?
In many countries, Czech Embassy or Consulate officials do not process initial applications or conduct your visa application interview, an essential part of the process where you will submit supporting documents and provide biometric data. The official visa application partner of the Czech Republic is VFS Global - so they may act on the country’s behalf in your nation. They can help arrange your appointment and track your application on behalf of the embassy. Their website : vfsglobal.com/en/individuals/index.html
What if the Czech Republic does not have an embassy or consulate in my country?
The Czech Republic does not have an embassy or consulate in every state, so if there isn’t one in your country, then officials from another Schengen country or their visa applications partner, such as VFS Global, will act on their behalf.
What does this have to do with travel insurance?
When you’re applying for a Schengen Visa to the Czech Republic, you need travel and medical cover or your application will be refused, and AXA’s Low Cost Travel Insurance only costs €0.99 ($1.11) per day of your trip and will meet your visa requirements, while the AXA Schengen Europe Travel Insurance offers extended coverage up to costs of €100,000.
