Czech Citizenship

Czech Passport

Generally speaking, there’s two categories of people eligible for a Czech passport:

  1. “Natural-born” Czech citizens – even if born abroad and/or to someone who never claimed their citizenship
  2. Those who are eligible to apply for citizenship by descent at an embassy by declaration

In practice, there’s little difference between these two categories, if you don’t hold a Czech passport. However, you will need to know which category applies to you in order to submit the right paperwork.
