Depending on the purpose of your travel to the Czech Republic, there are different types of visas that will apply to the occasion.

Whether you are planning to go on a visit, study or work and reside in the Czech Republic permanently, you will have to apply for a different Schengen Visa, accordingly.

There are many ways to obtain Czech citizenship. Children can acquire citizenship for example by birth, by acknowledgement of paternity, or by adoption. People who want to acquire Czech citizenship may simply apply for it, providing that they meet the conditions stated below.

Conditions Czech Citizenship

  • In general, as a foreigner, you can become a Czech citizen after 5 years of continuous long-term residence in the CR. With respect to the Czech law, this does not mean having to renounce your existing citizenship, as the Czech Republic allows people to have multiple citizenships.
  • If you want to apply for Czech citizenship, you need to submit an application and demonstrate knowledge of the Czech language on a B1 level and pass an exam about Czech history and culture. Both the exams are prepared by the Institute for Language and Preparatory Studies, Charles University.
  • You have to prove that you have really stayed in the territory of the Czech Republic. At the same time, it is considered whether you have integrated into Czech society, in particular in terms of family integration, employment, and social integration. Applicants for Czech citizenship must not endanger the security of the state, its sovereignty and territorial integrity, democratic foundations, lives, health, or property values. They must not have committed a criminal offence. The applicants also have to prove the amount and the sources of their income, their compliance with Czech laws and regulations and their independence of the state social support system and the assistance in material need system.
  • Czech citizenship applications shall be submitted at Regional Offices or at Municipal Offices of Prague districts. The administrative fee for granting citizenship is 2,000 CZK (for a minor child it is 500 CZK).
