Family members who are citizens of EU Member States, Iceland, Norway, Switzerland, or Liechtenstein do not need any authorization to live in the Czech Republic. A valid passport or ID card is sufficient.
The steps that an academic must take after arriving in the Czech Republic differ depending on the anticipated length of the stay.
If the stay exceeds 30 days, the family member must announce their presence to the respective foreign police office (a list of offices can be found here) within 30 days of entering the country. This obligation does not apply to family members who have fulfilled this obligation at an accommodation provider.
With stays longer than three months, a family member of an EU citizen may request registration certificate for the purpose of uniting the family.
document confirming that the applicant is a family member of the EU citizen (marriage certificate, birth certificate, verification of dependence for serious health reasons, documents confirming the existence of a permanent relationship)
photo (35 mm x 45 mm)
health insurance card
document confirming accommodation in the Czech Republic (accommodation agreement, lease agreement, sublease, proof of ownership of real estate)
The documents for issuing the registration certificate must not be older than 180 days, with the exception of passports, vital records, and photos of the applicant as long as they look like the applicant. Documents must be either the originals or certified copies of the originals. Passports and vital records must always be in the original. All submitted documents must be issued in Czech or Slovak or officially translated into Czech.
Applications are handled without undue delay or no later than 30 days after the commencement of proceedings.
