COVID19 Information WINTER SEMESTER 2022
We are administering the admission process assuming that the Winter semester will run as normal, but we cannot predict what measures will be in place at that time. The university will comply with all measures announced by the government.
Thus, we consider it is important for you to know that the anti-covid measures are determined by the government and are, unfortunately, subject to frequent change. You can find the latest information here: https://koronavirus.mzcr.cz/en/ and the measures applied for travelling are regularly updated here: https://reopen.europa.eu/en/
You might be obliged to undergo a PCR or antigen Covid-19 test after your arrival in the Czech Republic (more information: https://koronavirus.mzcr.cz/en/)
European Health Insurance Card holders and nationals of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cuba, Japan, Macedonia, Montenegro, Turkey, Tunisia and Serbia
We strongly advise all students from the above-mentioned countries to register at a Czech insurance company after their arrival in the Czech Republic. The registration is free of charge and it is required by Czech hospitals and doctors. If you don't register with a Czech insurance company, you will have to pay every medical treatment you receive at a doctor or in hospital here. Then, you will have to bring the bills to your insurance company in your home country and get it reimbursed. Visit the International Contact Point after your arrival to help you with the registration process. https://www.vsb.cz/en/study/international-contact-point
