I’m official, part 2

on October 2, 2012

Today I went to the Ministry of the Interior to register and apply for a temporary residence certificate. As was the case when I registered with the Foreign Police, I was advised that this would be a major hassle, that the staff at the Ministry were hostile, unhelpful and didn’t speak English and that I would be waiting for hours to be dealt with.

The truth – in and out in 20 minutes. The person I dealt with spoke excellent English, was friendly and helpful and there were no queues. Either people (and the internet) have exaggerated the time and trauma involved in this or else 10-ish on a Tuesday is tryly the magic time for dealing with official agencies.

I celebrated by going shopping – more new shoes and a sweater.


One response to “I’m official, part 2

  1. Perhaps it’s worse in Prague?
