Czech criminal history record

To apply for a Czech criminal history record, the applicants living within the jurisdiction of our Consulate may submit their application at our office in Los Angeles in person or may also submit their application by mail under the condition that their signature on the application form is notarized by a local notary public or by a Czech Honorary Consul (in this case the verification of the signature on the form is free).

If you apply for a Czech criminal history record for use in the U.S., do not forget to also apply for a Czech apostille if such procedure is required by U.S. authorities. The Consulate will forward the application to the competent authority in the Czech Republic. Currently the process takes approximately 2-3 months.
