Who We Are and What We Do

The American Citizen Services (ACS) office is part of the Consular section of the U.S. Embassy in Prague and provides assistance to U.S. citizens traveling or living in Czech Republic.

Information and services are offered for several issues, including U.S. passports, U.S. citizenship, Children of U.S. Citizens born abroad, Marriage in Czech Republic, Federal Benefits for U.S. Citizens living abroad, and Notarization of documents.

Please note that the staff is not authorized to perform personal tasks for citizens. For example, Consular Officers cannot act as travel agents, banks, interpreters or lawyers. They may not search for employers, obtain residence or driving permits, search for missing items or settle disputes with merchants.

A valid ticket which has been stamped with date and time is required for travel on public transportation in the Czech Republic, including all metros, trams and buses. You must validate (punch) your purchased ticket before descending the metro escalators or upon entering a tram or bus by inserting it into a machine.  The machine will stamp your ticket with the date and the time of the start of your trip.  If someone identifies himself as an inspector and you do not have a validated ticket, you will be subject to a fine on the spot.  The Embassy does not provide legal advice or recommendations regarding issues with Prague Transport.  For more information: https://www.dpp.cz/en
