Reporting changes

 Česky

Non-EU citizens holding a visa for a stay over 90 days or a long-term residence permit are required to report a change in the place of residence in the Czech Republic within 30 days of it occurring, if the change in the place of residence is expected to last longer than 30 days.

Non-EU citizens holding a permanent residence permit are required to report a change in the place of residence in the Czech Republic within 30 days of it occurring, if the change in the place of residence is expected to last longer than 180 days.

A change in the place of residence (new place of residence) is reported to the MOI office in the area of the new place of residence, by completing the “Form for reporting changes".

 

To report this change, the foreign national provides:

In the case of a foreign national with a visa sticker in a travel document or with a residence card (indicated in the form of a residence sticker in the travel document or as a separate document), this change can be reported by a different person on the basis of a power of attorney. The power of attorney must demonstrate that it was signed for this specific purpose. The signatures on the power of attorney do not have to be notarized.

If a foreigner holds a residence permit in form of a biometric card (ePKP), he/she will be issued a new biometric passport and has to come in person in order for his/her biometric data to be collected.

If a foreign national reports the change at an MOI office that does not have technical facilities to collect biometric data, he/she will be asked to provide his/her biometric data at a different office. It is recommended that the foreign national make an appointment at the relevant office as soon as possible.

The new biometric card is not issued on the spot and you will be called to visit the relevant office again to verify your biometric data and collect your card personally. When doing so, it is necessary to pay an administrative fee of CZK 1000 –in the form of stamps (kolek).

If a foreign national is prevented from reporting a change within the legally required period due to reasons outside of his/her control, he/she must report the change within 3 working days of these reasons ending. The foreign national must prove these reasons. If the change is not reported within the legally required period and there is no obstacle that is outside of the foreign national’s control, the delay in reporting a change will be judged as a violation and a fine can be imposed.
