  2. Foreigners holding other than Czech Passports should submit proof of long-term stay of at least two years in the Czech Republic/Czech Resident Permit.
  3. Acceptance of visa application does not guarantee issuance of visa. The issuance of visa, its type and duration are determined on the merits of each case.
  4. Visas are valid from the date of issue and not from the date of entry into Nigeria. Applicants should take this into account when specifying the duration of visa required.
  5. It is important to correctly specify the category of visa when making application, depending on the purpose of your visit. Activities in Nigeria incompatible with the category of the visa may result to immediate revocation of the visa.
