Czech Criminal Record - Police Clearance

The Criminal Record issued by the Crime Record Office of the Czech Republic may be obtained through the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Pretoria.

The Embassy of the Czech Republic in Pretoria requires all applicants to register prior to visiting the office. Appointment can be made via email: consulate_pretoria@mzv.cz


- present your identification (valid passport, ID); and

- pay the consular fee in cash.

Applicant must appear (in person and by appointment only) - at the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Pretoria to submit the application. We have to verify that you are really the person whose Czech criminal record is requested. According to the Czech Privacy Act it is illegal in the Czech Republic to issue the Czech criminal record to a third party.

Please note that the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Pretoria has become a part of 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 a few days.
