There are alternatives to visiting public offices in person. You can easily avoid long queues or clumsy conversations in Czech. And, most importantly right now, any healthy risks. Various offices strike to make admin increasingly online in the CR. There are two main tools to your disposal:
First of them is an online service called Data Mailbox (‘datová schránka’). It replaces the traditional way of sending and receiving documents in paper form and serves as a verified tool. It’s a system of secure communication, available for free in its basic form, and easy to set up during one visit to the nearest CzechPoint. Learn how to on our website. For your life in Brno, we recommend using BrnoID platform – the city’s e-shop which allows handling services from the comforts of your home. The platform’s completely in English and free of charge to use. You can easily set it up with your email and a scan of your identity card, and then pay your fees or fines (e.g. waste collection), and buy your tickets (šalinkarta, tourist cars, zoo tickets, libraries, etc).
