Alien's duties in the territory of the Czech Republic


Aliens who stay on the territory of the Czech Republic more than three days are subject to a so-called “reporting duty,” i.e. they need to report to the local branch of an Alien Police.

Following categories of aliens are exempt from this requirement:

  • children below 15 years of age;
  • foreigners registered by accommodation provider (for example hotel),
  • staff of diplomatic missions or international organizations accredited in the Czech Republic, their family members or aliens whose accommodation is provided by the Ministry of the Interior.

Foreigner who has been issued a long-term visa for the purpose of collecting a long-term residence permit registers his/her presence by collecting this permit.
