The Czech passport (Czech: cestovní pas, pas) is issued to Czech citizens at any age, and is the primary document of international travel issued by the Czech Republic. The passport, along with the national identity card allows for free rights of movement and residence in any of the states of the European Union and European Free Trade Association.
The passport is issued by the Interior Ministry (Ministerstvo vnitra), and as is internationally customary remains property of the Czech Republic and can be withdrawn at any time. It is a valid Proof of Citizenship document according to the Czech nationality law. Citizens can hold multiple passports at the same time, and children can be included in the passport. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs sporadically issues a list of nations with visa-free travel arrangements with the Czech Republic.

And people wouldnt let him live his own life. But he created his own career, in his own image.”
