If you want to attend EuroPython 2023 in Prague, the Czech Republic, you should first verify whether you need a visa to enter the Czech Republic, and apply for one as soon as possible if you do.
This list of countries defines if you require a visa to visit the Czech Republic.
NOTE: The Czech Republic is part of the EU, and part of the Schengen Area. So if you already have a valid Schengen visa, you may NOT need to apply for an Czech visa. Please check the website above and consult your local consular office or embassy, if you are uncertain.
If you do need a visa to attend EuroPython 2023, you can lodge a visa application issued for Short Stay (C), up to 90 days, for the purpose of “Business /Conference". We recommend you do this as soon as possible.
Please make sure you read all the visa pages carefully and prepare all the required documents before making your application. The EuroPython organisers are not able nor qualified to give visa advice.
Should you require a visa to travel to the Czech Republic, even though it is still possible to submit your visa application 15 days before your planned travel date, it is strongly advisable to apply as soon as possible, as it can sometimes take more than a month to receive a decision.
