Entry Requirements for the Czech Republic
There are no special visas (tourist or business) required to enter the Czech Republic for a stay of less than 90 days. A valid passport is required, showing at least 90 days validity post departure date from the Czech Republic. Planet Depos does recommend traveling with at least 6 months validity on your passport, however. You will need 2 blank visa pages to visit the Czech Republic. You will also need to check any countries you pass through to determine if a separate transit visa is required, as there will likely be a stopover in another country en route to the Czech Republic from the U.S.
