Exit order is a document issued by the Police of the Czech Republic ex officio in case of cancellation of a visa, refusal of an application for long-term residence, expiry of a visa after cancellation or expiry of a long-term or permanent residence permit.

Exit order grants a right to a temporary stay in the territory of the Czech Republic/Schengen area for the period necessary for taking urgent measures and for leaving the territory. The period of a temporary stay granted under the exit order shall not exceed 60 days. Its length is determined and marked in the exit order by the Police of the Czech Republic.

Exit order is a sticker affixed to the travel document by the Police of the Czech Republic, the Ministry of the Interior or the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In justified cases, it may be affixed outside of the travel document. It includes identification data, travel document number and the time limit for departure. In certain cases, specific departure border crossing is designated.

In case of termination of a stay of a citizen of the EU or his/her family member, the period of stay under the exit order is at least one month. In certain cases, this period may be shortened.
