Citizenship by Descent

Czech Citizenship by Descent

The Czech Republic grants citizenship by descent until the second generation, therefore if your parents or grandparents were Czech nationals, you may be eligible for Czech citizenship.

If your parents were not married and only your father was a Czech citizen, your parents must present proof of paternity to the Registry Office. This could be a declaration signed by both parents, a DNA test, or a court order.

Citizenship by Descent - Footnotes

Note: Keep in mind that the costs for citizenship by descent applications can vary and depend on many factors, such as:

  • The availability of official documents in different countries (if past family members migrated);
  • The availability of historic documents;
  • Sworn translation costs;
  • Price only includes main applicant, in case of adding children or spouses, this can incur additional costs);
  • Whether or not a genealogist is needed to prove ancestry;
  • Other unforeseen costs.

* In the case of first generation citizenship by descent, we assumed ONLY administration costs, which will be around $100 or less (usually free if application is done in the same country versus foreign embassy or consulate)
