General info

The easiest way to get an extract from the criminal register is to visit a CzechPoint1 service.

You can find a CzechPoint in almost every post office – you can check on the map here, but you can also search for the nearest CzechPoint on google maps.

Come to the post office you’ll find on the maps. Take with you at least one of these:

  • a valid identification card (EU citizens);
  • a valid passport (nonEU citizens);
  • and a residence permit (if you have one).

EU citizens (except for citizens of Italy, Portugal, Finland, the Netherlands, and Hungary – these have to get it from their national institutions abroad) can be given an extract from their home country as well if they ask for it. You will need to ask for a ‘výpis z rejstříku trestů s přílohou’.

The process takes up to 25 days. You will be notified if it is ready sooner, though. Also, you can pick your extract up at any other CzechPoint contact place.

The fee is 100 CZK.
