No visa is required.
If you plan to to stay in the Czech Republic for more than 30 days, you only have to report your stay to the foreign police within 30 days after your arrival. Trainees staying at the Sázava dorm will be reported by the dorm administration.
See http://www.mzv.cz/jnp/en/information_for_aliens/list_of_states_whose_citizens_are/index.html for the list of countries whose citizens are required to have a visa.
If you are required to have a visa, it is necessary to obtain it before your arrival. You have to apply for a visa at the Czech Embassy or Consulate in your country (or responsible for your country). The entire procedure takes approximately 8 weeks.
Within 3 working days from their arrival citizens from third countries have to report their stay with the foreign police. Trainees staying at the Sázava dorm will be reported by the dorm administration.
If you are staing at the dorm Sázava or Volha, please don’t read, this applies only for trainees staying somewhere else.
If you do not stay at the dorm you have to report your stay at the foreign police after your arrival. We will inform you about that and also arrange that someone from IAESTE will go with you to help you deal with the police. You need to take with you your travelling documents (passport, or visa if you are required to have one) and a health insurance receipt (or other document which confirms that you have a health insurance). It is usually not a very pleasant experience but you can go grab a beer afterwards.
