EU Students

Reporting Requirement of Arrival to the Territory

If a student comes from an EU member country, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, or Switzerland, they are not required to go through a visa application process. Instead, they have a "reporting requirement" upon arrival, but only if they plan to stay for more than 30 days.

Within 30 days of entering the Czech Republic, individuals must report their presence to the appropriate Foreign Police Department that has jurisdiction in their place of residence in the Czech Republic.

For students staying in private accommodations, it is essential to fulfill this ''reporting requirement'' as soon as possible. However, students residing in a dormitory or a hotel are exempt from this mandatory action, as the accommodation or hotel office will handle the reporting on their behalf.

Insurance (European Health Insurance Card)

Students from European Union (EU) member countries, as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom, are not required to obtain any additional insurance because they possess the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). However, you must register your EHIC with the insurance company in the Czech Republic. Further information regarding insurance can be found in the section for Students from EU countries (EHIC).

Obligatory Waste Management Municipal Fee

It's also essential to note that all foreigners staying in Olomouc for more than 90 days are obligated to pay the waste management municipal fee. However, this responsibility does not apply to students under 26 years of age staying at the UP dormitory. If you are residing in a flat, the fee is typically included in the rent, but it's advisable to confirm this with your landlord. For more detailed information about the payment, you can refer to the section on the Obligatory Waste Management Municipal Fee.

Further information regarding payment can be found in the section titled Obligatory waste management municipal fee.
