RECOMMENDATION

The application can be submitted by post now. Include all the necessary documents that are listed here -> https://www.mvcr.cz/mvcren/article/temporary-residence.aspx (the OAMP will probably require a copy of your passport). It is necessary to stay in the Czech Republic during the application. If “OAMP” requires personal participation, they will contact you.
