Over 326,750 Ukrainian refugees now have special visas

The Czech Republic has now granted special visas to over 326,750 refugees from Ukraine. Some 1,900 visas were handed out on Wednesday, according to Interior Ministry data.

Starting this week, refugees are required to report a change in their place of residence in Czechia in three days instead of the previous 30. The deadline for registering with the immigration police after entry into the Czech Republic has also been reduced to three days.

According to the ministry, this step will enable the use of the accommodation capacities in individual towns more effectively.
