How to obtain a Criminal History Record from the Czech Republic
Contact the consulate for the application form and fill it in according to the following specimen:
Enclose a valid photo ID.
Enclose your birth certificate. Please check that your birth certificate contains your parents names. If not you have to ask the appropriate agency for such birth certificate.
Enclose translation of your birth certificate into the Czech language. If you don't know Czech, ask somebody to translate it for you.
Take all 5 above documents and come any business day from 9 to 12 to the Czech Consulate in Toronto to submit the application. We have to verify that you are really the person whose Czech criminal record is requested. According to Czech Privacy Act it is illegal in the Czech Republic to issue the Czech criminal record to another person than it concerns.
Please note that the Consulate General of the Czech Republic has become a part to the CzechPoint system, which allows the Criminal History Record to be issued same day to an applicant who has been assigned a Czech birth number (rodne cislo - usually assigned to every Czech citizen and to aliens with long-term and permanent residence permit in the Czech Republic). For applicants without a Czech birth number it may take few days.
