A certificate of temporary residence for an EU citizen

For an EU citizen, the certificate of temporary residence is not a condition of their stay in the Czech Republic, therefore it is up to them whether they request this certificate be issued or not.

A certificate of temporary residence is issued at the request of an EU citizen who intends to stay in the Czech Republic for more than 3 months and has not threatened state security or seriously disrupted public order.

The application for issuing a certificate of temporary residence is filed on the appropriate form.

Application requirements:

 

If it concerns a family member of an EU citizen, who himself/herself is an EU citizen and he/she intends to temporarily stay in the Czech Republic for a period longer than 3 months together with an EU citizen, the application for a certificate of temporary residence shall be supported by:

 

The requirements for the application shall not be older than 180 days except for the travel document, birth certificate, marriage certificate and the photograph of the foreign national if it corresponds to his/her actual appearance. You should always submit originals or notarized copies of the documents. All of the documents submitted must be made out in the Czech language or officially translated into Czech.

An application for a certificate of temporary residence can be filed at the MOI offices. With regards to the possible personal contact with the office where the application was filed it is best to file the application at the office nearest to where you are registered.

The application is processed without undue delay, within 30 days of initiating the process at the latest.

In the case of a positive decision, the applicant is invited in writing or by telephone by the MOI office to pick up the certificate of temporary residence.

At the same time, the MOI issues a personal identity number.
