Requirements for Schengen visa
A Schengen visa issued by a diplomatic mission of the Czech Republic or of another Schengen state entitles its holder to stay in the territory of the Czech Republic for the period stated in the visa, unless the Czech Republic is excluded from the territorial validity of such visa.
Short-term visa is issued as a Schengen visa, i.e. grants a possibility of stay in the Schengen Territory for a maximum of 90 days within a half-year.
US citizens are not required to hold a Schengen short-term visa for a stay, which does not exceed 90 days under the condition that the stay is not proﬁtable. Under these conditions, US citizens are allowed to travel to the Schengen Area without visa.
