By Angelo Cerasiotis

Reclaiming Czech citizenship is a significant milestone for people with Czech heritage.

Not only will you be able to reconnect with your ancestors, but you get unlimited access to live and study in any of the 27 EU member states. Czechia has been a member of the EU since 2004, which means you get all the additional benefits of being an EU citizen with a Czech passport.

Czech citizenship can be acquired by birth or by declaration. The pathway to Czech citizenship can be complex and time-consuming as you need to gather all the required documents and submit the application before  the government even decides on the decision (which can take up to 6 month’s itself); but with the right knowledge and team behind you, you will be able to streamline this process!

How long will it take to have my Czech citizenship confirmed?

To reclaim your Czech citizenship through Polaron it can take anywhere between 9-15 months. It will also take a further 2-3 months to receive your Czech passport through the consulate.

This process includes:

  • Gathering evidence to prove your eligibility for Czech citizenship (0-24 months).
