Health and Insurance
You can make “Travel and Health Insurance” in Turkey in your short term trainings. However, with the long term visa you will have to have a Czech insurance company to insure that your check will be valid for the period of your stay. When you go to get your long term visa, the Embassy wants you to come with this insurance. Our school is helping all our students in making insurance. The fee for this insurance is approximately EUR 310.
Currency and Currencies
Although the Czech Republic is a member of the European Union, it still uses its own currency, the “Czech Koruna”. If you want to change the currency, it will be the smartest way to change the exchange rates in the cities. Banks always break down your debts. However, when you are going to spoil your currency in foreign currency, we strongly recommend that you check that you do not take “commission” before you change your money. Some foreign exchange bureaus receive commissions of up to 25% and they do not cancel the transaction without checking it. We advise you to be careful not to fall into a situation you do not want and to suffer money loss. Besides, we strongly warn you that you should not count on anyone who would offer to exchange money on the street.
