Passport Renewal - before you come to the Consulate
25.01.2012 / 17:20
We highly recommend that you contact us before coming to apply for renewal of your passport.
In order to apply for a biometric passport, it is necessary that the applicant's personal data is up-to-date in the central database system called "Czech Citizenship Register Database (ISEO)". From time to time a situation may occur when an applicant does not have these data updated or he/she is not in the database at all. In this case, it is necessary first to correct this situation and only then carry out the passport application procedure. The processing time of inputting/correcting applicant 's information in the datebase is usually 7 working days.
To avoid possible problems, we highly recommend the applicants to send this application form to the Consulate by mail, email or fax before visiting it in person. We can check your data and confirm that they are correct and up-to-date.
