RESIDENCE PERMIT IN CZECH REPUBLIC

Live without borders

A Czech Temporary Residence Permit is the document, issued to a citizen of the non-EU country, which gives you opportunities to immigrate, live and work in the Czech Republic and Schengen area countries, during the entire time of the document validity. A temporary residence permit through employment in Czech Republic can be issued for 1 year initially. 

Currently the best option to acquire a residence permit in Czech Republic is via employment. An employee card is most often issued for the duration of the employer-employee relationship, for the validity of recognition of the authority´s decision about employment permit or professional work, but not for more than 2 years, with an option to repeatedly extend its validity.

An employee card is a new type of permit for long-time residence in the territory of the Czech Republic (CR) where the purpose of the foreign national’ stay (longer than 3 months) is employment.

With regard to professional qualifications, an employee card is intended for all types of employment regardless of the level of required professional qualifications. However, the job vacancy for which an application for an employee card can be filed must come from the central register of job vacancies that can be filled by holders of employee cards.

In this case your spouse and minor children (under 18) will obtain a residence permit for the same period which your residence permit card is given for and will immigrate to Czech Republic together with you. (For example, spouse, common law partner, and dependants, including children under 18 and parents over 65) to join you in Czech Republic.
