Official Minimum Salary Level Lower Than Expected

Czech Republic

The situation

The Czech government confirmed that effective January 1, 2019, the minimum monthly salary for foreign workers in the Czech Republic is CZK 13,350, up nine percent from last year. This is in contrast to the previously-reported proposed increase of 12 percent.

A closer look

All previously-reported conditions still apply.


While the increase is considerable, employers are expected to easily meet the new threshold since foreign workers typically receive salaries well above the threshold.

Looking ahead

Fragomen will report relevant developments on other countries’ increases and other development in the Czech Republic as they occur.
