Which identification means to choose?
To access online services, it is sufficient to choose just one of the available means. However, it may happen that a different one will suit you better even if you already have another one activated, either for a specific situation, or for different reasons which we cannot foresee. Therefore, please, consider all available options.
- If you already use identity authentication via one of the available identification means, it will be easier for you to use the same method for other online services as well.
- If you use internet banking Česká Spořitelna, ČSOB, KB, MONETA or Air Bank, you can verify your identity through those.
- If you have a data box, you can create NIA ID or eGovernment mobile key via website cz online.
If you cannot use any of the above options, you will have to arrange an entirely new means of identification. You can apply for it online, but in order to activate it you will have to visit a CzechPoint in person and provide an identity document (ID or passport).
- If you own a smartphone, we recommend choosing eGovernment mobile key.
- If you do not own a smartphone, but have a different mobile phone, NIA ID will be better for you.
