What do I need to do when entering Czech Republic?

Ukrainian citizens arriving in Czech Republic can apply in person for a special long-term visa at the Ministry of Interior (visit the website).

What support can I get if I am a person living with diabetes?

Medical care is free for Ukrainian citizens receiving a special long-term visa in Czech Republic . Prescriptions for most medications and supplies are required, and some supplies can be bought directly in pharmacies.  

People living with diabetes can ask a diabetes specialist for medical care. Unless necessary, before contacting the Czech Diabetes Society, please search for a local diabetologist near your location (“Diabetolog“, “Diabetologie” in Czech)
