To the USA without visa by January 2009

Although American people do not need visas to travel to the Czech Republic, Czech people travelling to the USA have to apply for visas before departure. The process is very long and tiring. Now it seems that Czech will travel without visas by January 2009.

Deputy Premier for European Affairs Alexandr Vondra said that it will all be dependent on the speed of legislative processes in the USA. According to the Department of Homeland Security’s Counselor Paul Rosenzweig, the visas for Czechs (and other EU members) could be abolished before the end of President Bush administration.

If Czech people want to obtain visa, they first have to fax their application to the embassy. After 24 hours they have to call to the embassy whether the application have arrived and make an appointment. At an interview with a consul, the consul decides whether the visa will be granted or not.
