Not everybody knows, that even when EU citizens arrive in the Czech Republic and plan on staying here for a long period (meaning for more than 30 days), there are some legal commitments they have to fulfill. Registration of their new address is surely one of them. Why is it so important and who is obligated to do this? Let’s sort it out!
If you are a EU citizen and came to the Czech Republic for more than 30 days with the purpose of traveling, visiting, working or studying, you have to report an address you’re staying at. Where do you have to report? The answer is simple: Foreign Police Department.
It’s obligatory for all EU citizens + citizens of Norway, Iceland, Lichtenstein and Switzerland. In case you didn’t report your address, you might get charged a fine of 3000 Czech crowns. However, if your landlord already registered you at Immigration Police, you don’t need to do this procedure. For more details follow the link and read the article about duties of landlords in the Czech Republic. Nevertheless, we strongly suggest you to have things under your control and report a new address yourself: our relocation consultants find this way more reliable and safe. Once you get a stamp in your passport, you can live, work and travel here peacefully and without any concerns!
