Permanent residence


Permanent residence permit for children born in the Czech Republic

If the legal representative of a foreign national born in the territory resides on the basis of a permanent residence permit, they are obliged to file an application for permanent residence on behalf of the child within 60 days of the child’s birth.

If an application is filed, the residence of the newly born foreign national is understood to be permanent from the moment of birth to the time the decision on the application comes into force (this is primarily of importance for health insurance purposes).

The application on permanent residence can be filed at the MOI office according to where the child is expected to reside.

Application requirements are:

  1. the child’s travel document; can be substituted by submitting a travel document of the foreign national (legal representative), in which the child is entered,

  2. the child’s birth certificate
