Extract from the Penal Register record
For a long-term visa and long-term residence applications the foreigner is not obliged to submit an extract from the Czech Republic Penal Register. For these purposes the MOI is authorized to obtain this document itself.
In some cases for the purpose of application proceedings for a long-term visa or a long-term residence permit is necessary that the applicant submits an extract from the Penal Register record issued by the state of which the foreign national is a citizen and also by the states in which the foreign national has had continuous residence for over 6 months in the last 3 years. The extract from the Penal Register record may be replaced by an affidavit, if the given state does not issue such a document. The obligation to submit an extract from the Penal Register record does not relate to a foreign national under 15 years old.
