The Census 2021 is running until 11 May. All foreigners who have a permanent or temporary residence in the Czech Republic for over 90 days (regardless of whether they are currently in Czechia or not) are obliged to get counted. You must also fill in the form if you have been granted an asylum or you have stayed in our territory at midnight from 26th to 27th March 2021. The Census does not apply to diplomats and foreigners who are staying in the Czech Republic for less than 90 days (e.g. tourists).
In other words everyone who has a registered stay in the Czech Republic for over 90 days or has been granted an asylum in the Czech Republic (or rather had it at the decisive moment at midnight from 26th March to 27th March 2021) must get counted. It does not matter where such person lives in the world, what his/her citizenship is or where he/she is registered to stay abroad.
Everyone who is present in our territory at the decisive moment (at midnight from 26th March to 27th March 2021) gets counted, unless he/she is a diplomat or tourist present only for a short time (up to 90 days) in the Czech Republic. It does not matter whether he/she has a registered stay in the Czech Republic.
Foreigners who have a document issued by the Czech Republic (biometric card, visa, permanent residence permit, certificate of temporary residence in the Czech Republic, etc.) can enumerate online. If foreigners do not have such a document, they will have to enumerate themself using using paper form, which they will receive at selected Czech Post offices, where they can also submit the completed form. They can also ask the Census Commissioner at MENDELU dormitories for help.
