Change of address

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 Long-term 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.

A change of the address is charged with the administrative fee that is equal to CZK 1 000 CZK. In case of children up to 15 years the administrative fee is equal to CZK 500. The administrative fee has to be paid at the moment of reporting the change - in the form of stamps (kolek).

In case of foreigners who are holders of long-term residence permit (holders of biometric residence card) a new residence card is not issued. Thus, they will be holders of original residence card henceforward. These foreigners need not to visit the office of the Ministry of the Interior in person in this case. They just can report the change in written form - by sending the filled form with the administrative fee and the original or certified copy of a proof of accommodation to the address of an appropriate office.

A new biometric residence card will be issued to foreigners who are holder of permanent residence permit. Therefore, they are obliged to visit an appropriate office of the Ministry of the Interior to provide their biometric data. It is recommended to make an appointment there in advance. A new biometric card will not be issued on the spot; foreigners will be called to visit the MOI office to collect it personally.

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.
