As an EU citizen, you’re not obliged to apply for a temporary residence certificate. However, if you’re planning to stay in the Czech Republic for more than 3 months, you’ll find that having this certificate is a huge advantage. Without this certificate, it may be hard to buy real estate, get a mortgage, register your vehicle or even park in some Prague districts with prepaid parking zones. You may also require a Czech temporary residence certificate when applying for a business visa to some foreign countries. After you’ve held a temporary residence certificate for 5 years, you can apply for permanent residency(LINK).
