During the check-in process, the validity of your travel documents and visas is controlled. Citizens of the Czech Republic can travel abroad using the following documents:
- Valid passport or other travel document as amended by Act No 329/1999 Coll.
- Valid identity card (ID) – can be used to EU countries, Iceland, Norway, Lichtenstein and Switzerland.
Travel documents for children
It is not possible for any child to be inscribed in the passport of his/her parents if they are to travel abroad. It is required for the child to hold his/her own travel document.
- ID (children younger than 15 years of age can obtain an ID which is used for travel purposes within the EU)
- Other travel document (as amended by Act No 329/1999 Coll.)
Recommended travel documents
- You should take care of your travel documents (we don’t recommend you to use a damaged travel document, for example ID with a cut off corner).
- Your passport must be valid for the duration of your stay (some countries, like Turkey and Tunisia, require even longer validity of your passport - see below).
- If your passport has been lost or stolen during your stay abroad, report it to the Czech representative office abroad. An emergency one-way travel document will be issued for you to go back to the Czech Republic.
- Detailed information on travel documents will be provided by your travel agency or the Immigration Police of the Czech Republic.
- For further information on travel documents, visit the websites of the Ministry of the Interior of the Czech Republic or Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic.
Passport Validity Requirements to enter Turkey
We strongly advise all passengers to Turkey that their passport should be valid at least 150 days from the date they enter Turkey. If the passport is valid for less than 150 days, the passenger won’t be able to board the flight as he wouldn’t be allowed to enter the country by immigration officers in Turkey.
