Czech Police Passport Requirements for "Foreigners"

An invitation to visit the Czech Republic, which is verified by an Alien Police inspectorate, is a document proving the obligation of the inviting person to cover for the needs of the invited foreigner related to:
bullethis/her subsistence for the period of their stay in the CR up to their departure,
bullethis/her accommodation for the period of their stay in the CR up to their departure,
bulletmedical care for the period of their stay in the CR up to their departure, potentially including costs of transportation of the patient, or the deceased,
bullethis/her stay in the CR up to their departure (this concerns costs incurred to the CR in relation to the stay and departure of an invited individual who is subjected to administrative expulsion).
In a short stay invitation, the inviting person may declare to cover all costs related to the stay of the invited individual or to cover costs related to accommodation only.
Invitation forms are available at those Alien Police inspectorates which verify such invitations. The Alien Police inspectorates will verify your invitation within 7 days after its acceptance. The inspectorates collect a CZK 300 fee stamp for each verification.
The Foreigner’s Act stipulates circumstances under which verification may be denied, such as should the foreigner invited be listed in the registry of unwanted persons, or should the inviting person fail to prove, upon request, his ability to meet obligations concerned (such as to cover all costs related to accommodation of the invited foreigner).
One form can be used to invite one person over age 15. Underage visitors may be added to such form. The fee remains unchanged.
