Czech Republic Immigration Services

​• The Czech Republic's immigration system provides many options for employers of foreign nationals. The Czech Republic is a member of the European Union (EU) and the Schengen Area. Requirements, processing times, employment eligibility and benefits for accompanying family members vary by permit type.
 
• Business visitors to the Czech Republic typically use a local version of the Schengen C Visa, which foreign nationals are required to obtain before arrival in the Czech Republic unless they are visa exempt based on their nationality. The Schengen Area limits stays to 90 days within any 180-day period, counted cumulatively across the Schengen Area.
 
• The main work authorization category is the Employee Card, a combined work and residence permit for highly skilled local hires. For intracompany transfers, assignments, and secondments​​, it must be combined with a separate work permit. The Employee Card can be issued for up to two years and is renewable.​​
