International education programmes and emergency measures concerning coronavirus

The Czech government has today declared a state of emergency in response to the current coronavirus situation. New emergency measures will be enforced from 14:00 on March 12, 2020 onwards.

In light of this decision and under the advisement of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport, the Czech National Agency for International Education (DZS) implements the following measures:

• All new international mobilities financed by programmes administered by DZS will be put on hold. This concerns all types of mobilities, e.g. for pupils, students, academic and non-academic staff as well as other professionals working in the education field.

• We highly recommend that all participants of international mobilities who are currently abroad suspend their stay and return to the Czech Republic. This concerns all types of mobilities, e.g. for pupils, students, academic and non-academic staff as well as other professionals working in the education field.

• Foreign students who are currently staying in the Czech Republic are advised to contact the sending institution or embassy.
