  • Czech Republic Details

As of our last update, the Czech Republic offers several types of work permits and visas for non-EU/EEA and Swiss nationals. Here are the main types:


1.Employee Card: This is a combined permit that encompasses both the residence and work permit for a foreign national. It's intended for those who have an employment relationship with a contract for a duration longer than 3 months.

2.Blue Card: An EU Blue Card in the Czech Republic is a permit for long-term residence for the purpose of employment. It's intended for highly skilled non-EU workers. To qualify, applicants generally need a higher professional qualification and a work contract or binding job offer with a high enough salary threshold.

3.Short-Term Employment Authorization: For employment relationships lasting up to 90 days. The employer needs to notify the Employment Office about this employment.

4.Seasonal Employment Card: Specifically designed for seasonal jobs, this card combines a permit for a stay over 90 days with a work permit for seasonal work activities.

5.Intra-Company Transfer Card: For managers, specialists, or trainee employees who are transferred within a multinational company from a non-EU country to the Czech Republic.

6.Work Visa: For those planning to work in the Czech Republic for a shorter period (up to 6 months). This is less common than the Employee Card.

7.Agreement-Based Employment: For those who have a small job (like tutoring) and will not be considered employees. The duration of work cannot exceed 20 hours per week.



It's worth noting that EU/EEA and Swiss citizens do not need any work permit to be employed in the Czech Republic. However, after a certain period, they may need to register their stay if they intend to live in the country long-term.


Given the intricacies of immigration law and the potential for changes, it's always a good idea to consult the Czech Republic's Ministry of the Interior website or an official Czech consulate or embassy for the most up-to-date and comprehensive information regarding work permits and visas or Talk to our experts.
