Today, the Czech government approved one of the two agreements needed for abolition of U.S. visa requirements. The Agreement was designed to prevent and combat serious crime. Now, American authorities will have full access to fingerprints and DNA profiles of Czech citizens. While the document must be approved by the Czech Parliament and signed by the president, it is just a formality, since the visa requirement will be lifted on the 17th of November – on the 19th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution, which is recorded in the world history as the final day of the Communist regime in former Czechoslovakia.

The second document that will be approved is an agreement for cooperation with the U.S. law enforcement and security forces in the fight against terrorism.

 

Czechs with the new biometric passports can apply for a travel permit via ESTA (Electronic System of Travel Authorization).
