Information for applicants who were granted temporary protection in connection with Russian aggression in Ukraine

For applicants who were issued a document of temporary protection (Doklad o udělení dočasné ochrany) or special visa (Zvláštní vízum strpění) the following applies:

  • They are exempt from paying the nostrification fee for applications submitted after March 21, 2022, if they do one of the following:

  1. Applicant presents a document of temporary protection or a special visa at the Recognition of Foreign Degree Office during the office hours.

  2. Applicant makes a simple copy of their document of temporary protection or special visa (if the visa does not include a name and photograph, the passport page with the name and photograph has to also be copied). Applicant writes on the copy „This is a true copy of the original“ or „Kopie se shoduje s originálem“, adds date and signature by hand, and submits this copy together with the application and other documents to the Rectorate of Charles University.

  • They can substitute a missing document or validate a simple copy by an affidavit (a written statement). Information on properties of an affidavit can be found on the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport website.

The application form in Ukrainian can be found here.

If a Ukrainian document is issued both in Ukrainian and in English, translation is not necessary, an authenticated copy is sufficient. If a document was issued in Ukrainian only, an official translation to Czech or English has to be firmly attached to the authenticated copy. A list of Czech court translators from Ukrainian can be found here.

You can submit an application by:

  • Sending it by post to the Rectorate of Charles University, Ovocný trh 560/5, 116 36 Praha 1

  • Placing it in the mail box in front of the Charles University Mail Office (the building is open on workdays from 7 am to 6 pm) in an envelope marked „Nostrifikace“.

  • Submitting it personally at the Recognition of Foreign Degree Office during the office hours (building Nová Astorie, room 223, Monday and Wednesday 10:00 - 12:00, 13:00 - 16:00).
