The legal status of a long-term resident

The MOI recognises the legal status of long-term resident in the European Community in the Czech Republic at the time of issuing the permanent residence permit if you meet the following conditions:

  • 5 years of continuous residence in the Czech Republic,

  • on your part, there has been no serious disturbance of public order or threats to national security of the CR or that of another EU Member State, and

  • you have demonstrated you have funds for permanent residence in the Czech Republic.

 

If the legal status of a long-term resident in the European Community in the Czech Republic is not recognised at the same time as the permanent residence permit is, the MOI can recognise it at a later stage, if you request it and meet the conditions.

The legal status of a long-term resident in the European Community in the Czech Republic can likewise be recognised for a family member of an EU citizen who is not an EU citizen.

The application is filed at the MOI office according to the place where you are registered.

For an "Application for the Legal Status of a Long-term resident of the European Community in the Czech Republic" that is not filed at the same time as an application for a permanent residence permit, you shall submit a proof of funds for permanent residence in the country.

 

IMPORTANT:  Complete description of all the rules and benefits of this status, including information on residence possibilities in other EU countries and the Council Directive 2003/109/EC of 25 November 2003 concerning the status of third-country nationals who are long-term residents, which this status follows from, is available here.
