Visa Requirements and Waivers



Meeting all visa and customs requirements is an individual responsibility of each participant. Please consult the Czech Embassy in your country to find out whether you require a visa, and if so, what requirements are set forth for obtaining it. Youth Leadership Europe will assist you in the visa application process to the best of its abilities, however such assistance will be limited to providing you with an invitation letter and some other supporting documents. YLE will only make calls to the Embassies in exceptional cases.
