How can I convert documents?

Conversion from paper to electronic format

If you want to convert documents from paper to electronic format, bring the document you wish to convert to any post office marked with the Czech POINT logo.

We can save the resulting file onto your USB flash drive or CD. Alternatively, we can give you a CD free of charge. The file can also be transferred to our onlineRepository, where you can download it at any time - just enter the correct serial number of the document and of the conversion.

Conversion from electronic to paper format

If you want to convert documents from electronic to paper format, bring the electronic document in the PDF format or the entire data message in the ZFO format:

  • on a CD (DVD),
  • on a USB flash drive,
  • send it from your data mailbox, or
  • upload it in the PDF, ZFO, FO format to our online Repository. Don't forget to bring the upload certificate from the onlineRepositoryto have the conversion done.

You can find the online Repository at https://www.czechpoint.cz/uschovna/.

The advantage of our Repository is that the document can be authenticated already before conversion. It also enables you to easily check whether a concrete PDF document complies with the conditions for conversion from electronic to paper format in order to prevent the situation when you arrive at the Czech Point outlet only to find out that your document cannot be converted from electronic to paper format.

If your document is eligible for conversion, you will be informed about validity of the electronic signature/s and/or time stamp attached to the document and offered transfer of your document to our Repository.

V případě, že váš dokument podmínky pro provedení konverze nesplní, získáte informace o tom, z jakého důvodu dokument nelze konvertovat.

If your document is not eligible for conversion, you will get information about the reason for non-eligibility.
