British nationals – last call to update your permit to a biometric card

UK citizens who’ve been living in the Czech Republic since before January 2021 must exchange their permit for a biometric card by August 31st 2022.
If you don’t have a biometric card already, we recommend starting the process ASAP to avoid delays and long waiting times.

Not applying for the biometric card before the upcoming August deadline may result in delays or refusal of Czech state services. It may also make travelling within and into the Schengen area more difficult.

Contact us today to get assistance with your biometric card process. We will book your appointments at the Ministry of Interior and accompany you to data collection to avoid language barriers and confusion.

Process steps

– case assessment
– Ministry of Interior (MOI) appointment booking (currently the earliest appointments are in early August!)
– MOI accompanied appointment to collect biometric data
– MOI accompanied appointment to collect the biometric card
