Opening a bank account in the Czech Republic
After you come to the Czech Republic you will probably want to open a Czech bank account.
You would need to present your passport and another form of identification such as a driver’s license or identity card. Most banks also ask for a residency certificate or work contract to prove your link to the Czech republic. We recommend EU citizens to obtain the Czech Temporary residency certificate which will make your process faster and it will also allow you to ask for a mortgage in the future and get a Czech credit card. Some Czech banks might require your job contract or income tax report for the purpose of getting a credit card or mortgage, so the Czech Temporary certificate makes your life in the Czech republic easier!
One of the most popular banks for foreigners is Fio, Air, and Equa bank where you can make an account free of charge.
