At the same time you need to pay for the administration fee.

In case someone else instead of the applicant submits the application, the person has to present applicant´s Power of attorney (DOCX, 13 KB).

For submission of the application it is necessary to arrange a prior appointment via e-mail -  consular_delhi@mzv.cz

The processing time approximately takes 8 weeks.

For making use of the certificate abroad, an additional authentication by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic is necessary.

Please note that the apostille is not needed for police clearance certificates issued by the Embassy of India in Prague (as per the bilateral consular convention between the Government of the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic, 1979). This exemption can only be applied on a bilateral basis between India and the Czech Republic (not on the documents issued by Indian embassies in other countries).
