Information on establishing or cancelling permanent residence
Registration for permanent residence
Registration for permanent residence is always done at the registration office of the municipality where the property is located.
You will submit the following documents to the municipal office:
- Valid identity cardfrom (for marriage, you can present an OP with the corner cut off or a marriage certificate); you CANNOT use your passport if you have a valid OP
- proof of ownership of the property (preferably the title deed; the purchase contract is not sufficient proof for permanent residence registration), lease agreement with original signatures, or consent of the owner (granted in person or as a certified power of attorney), not older than 3 months, sublease agreement including the owner's consent with his certified signature
- fill in the Permanent Residence Registration Form (available at the registration desk)
- children always register separately, a person over 15 years of age fills in the registration form for himself/herself
- the administrative fee for the application is 50 CZK per person over 15 years of age
- The OP is marked by cutting off the corner "A" and the reporting office will issue you with a Certificate of Change of Permanent Residence
The registration of a new permanent address automatically ends the stay at the original address.
It is your responsibility to apply for a new IP within 15 days at any office that handles this agenda, regardless of your place of residence. Typically, these are all the offices of the municipal districts in Prague, or at Černošice Municipal Office, workplace Podskalská 19, Prague 2.
Please note that with effect from 2.8.2021, in accordance with Act No. 269/2021 Coll. on ID cards, the the validity of the IP will automatically end after 45 days after a change of permanent address! It is therefore necessary to comply with the 15-day deadline for applying for a new IP after a change of permanent residence (as well as after a change of name or surname, birth number or marital status, if this information is recorded on the IP).
Driving licences no longer need to be changed, but the information in the vehicle registration must be updated within 10 days of a change of residence! You can use any vehicle register, e.g. at Černošice Municipal Office (administrative department/vehicle register), the administrative fee is 50 CZK per change.

Cancellation of permanent residence
Application for cancellation of permanent residence can be submitted by the owner of the property or part of it, or by an authorised person (e.g. a tenant). Petitioner is obliged to prove to the reporting office if both of these conditions are met:
- the citizen's right of use of the building or a defined part of the building has expired (lease agreement has ended, owner withdraws his consent, divorce)
- and at the same time prove that the citizen does not use the object.
The applicant shall pay an administrative fee of CZK 100 for each person whose permanent residence is to be cancelled.
The notification authority shall decide on the cancellation of the permanent residence on request in an administrative procedure, usually within 30 days.
The place of permanent residence of a citizen whose permanent residence has been cancelled becomes, after the decision becomes final, the address of the registration office in whose territorial district the citizen's permanent residence has been cancelled.
Cancellation of permanent residence immediately ends the validity of the ID card. A citizen whose permanent residence has been revoked must apply for a new identity card within 15 working days after the date on which the decision to revoke the place of permanent residence becomes final.
