Czech Republic Emigration
Passports and travel
You should carry your residence permit (i.e. Potvrzení o přechodném pobytu, or Průkaz o povolení k trvalému pobytu), as well as your valid passport when you travel. If you have applied but not yet received your permit, carry a proof of application.
If you have not yet applied for a residence permit, you should carry evidence that you are resident in the Czech Republic. This could include a tenancy agreement or a utility bill in your name, dating from 2020.
If you cannot show that you are resident in the Czech Republic, you may be asked additional questions at the border to enter the Schengen area, and your passport may be stamped on entry and exit. This will not affect your rights in the Czech Republic.
Check your passport is valid for travel before you book your trip.
You must have at least 6 months left on an adult or child passport to travel to most countries in Europe (not including Ireland). This requirement does not apply if you are entering or transiting to the Czech Republic, and you are in scope of the Withdrawal Agreement.
If you renewed your current passport before the previous one expired, extra months may have been added to its expiry date. Any extra months on your passport over 10 years may not count towards the 6 months needed.
As a non-EEA national, different border checks will apply when travelling to other EU or Schengen area countries. You may have to use separate lanes from EU, EEA and Swiss citizens when queueing. You may also need to show a return or onward ticket.
