On the confirmation there will be written when the Record will be prepared for you. On this date you will  go to any post office (Czech Point) in the Czech Republic, show to the official the above mentioned  confirmation and your passport or ID card and the Criminal Record will be given to you.

When received the diploma

Step 1

Note that some countries require the verification on the original, some “only” on the verified copy, some countries may not even need it (EU) – you need to find out the requirements in a particular country where you want to practice medicine/dentistry.

If the original is not required, not to spoil your original Diploma, have the Latin Diploma copied and the copy officially notarised/verified!!!

Onto the notarised/verified copy get the stamps from particular Ministries – see further:

Make notary verified copies of your diploma. You can go to any notary office (notář)

In Prague centre there are plenty of notary offices on Národní třída, Na Příkopě, U Prašné brány, Dlouhá street, etc. for the official verification of the copies – at these places, you should be also able to get the originals copied.
