Before the visa is valid, you will be requested to present a travel medical insurance document for the period from the date of your entry into the territory of the Czech Republic to the date when your public medical insurance in the Czech Republic will become effective.
Upon arrival to the Czech Republic, you must visit an office of the Ministry of the Interior in order to comply with your address registration obligation and provide biometric data, which is necessary for production of your employee card.
