Application proceedings

The application proceedings are subject to the Act on the Residence of Foreign Nationals (pdf, 1.8 MB), the Administrative Act and possibly other related laws.

In the event that the application was not submitted with the prescribed requirements or has defects, and if the application is submitted at the Ministry of Interior, the clerk receiving the application will help you remove these deficiencies or prompt you to remove them and give you a reasonable time period to do so, and will inform you about the consequences of failure to remove the deficiencies within this period, while the proceedings on your application may be interrupted.

Provide any additional documents to the application in person, through your proxy or by post. Always provide any documents that you were invited to supply within the prescribed period. Failure to provide the requested documents may be reason for a dismissal of your application. Over the course of the proceedings, you may demonstrate other documents you consider important for the assessment of your application. Remember that travel documents must be submitted in person.

The Act on Residence of Foreign Nationals (pdf, 1.8 MB) provides a period of 90 days from the date of application inside the CR, during which the Ministry of Interior is to decide on your application. If proceedings are interrupted, the period for issuing a decision does not run. This period does not run or is extended also in other cases stipulated by law.

During the proceedings, you may ask for access to the file materials and become acquainted with them. You may also be prompted by the Ministry to become acquainted with them before it rules a decision.
