If you’re planning on working in the Czech Republic, it can be difficult to find out which worker visa category applies to you.
To help you out, we’ve put together this handy guide on how to get a work permit in less than a month!
Figure out which one of these categories applies to you.
If you are a citizen of an EU member state, you can apply for a work permit in the Czech Republic.
You will need to provide proof that your home country has issued a work permit for at least six months before applying for this one.
Suppose you are not an EU citizen but are still interested in getting the Czech Republic work permit. In that case, we recommend submitting an online application through the website.
Gather all documents and fill out the Czech Republic Work Permit application form.
Once you have all your documents, it’s time to fill out the application form. You will need a valid passport, proof of employment and an invitation letter from your employer.
The company must also be willing to pay for your flight or accommodation in Prague before issuing them their work permit and salary advance monies (if applicable).
The Czech Republic Work Permit Application Form is available online here:
It can be completed online by uploading photos and other related documents needed for processing in minutes!
Figure out where to submit your application.
If you’re already in the Czech Republic, go to the website of your local district office (to find out what it is, click on your city or region on the map below).
Use their website if you’re outside of the country and would like to apply for a work permit there.
Get a local address if necessary and get a photo.
You can use a friend’s address if you don’t have a local address. You can also go to your local hotel and get a photo of yourself at their front desk.
The best option is to use the address of a business willing to provide it for free (such as Mcdonald’s).
Suppose none of those options works out for you.
In that case, there are other places where people might have left their old addresses behind: embassies and consulates around Europe will often store such information in case someone needs help visiting relatives abroad; also, check with friends who live close enough by so they could give up theirs!
Submit your application before leaving Prague!
To submit your application, you must have all the required documents with you when submitting it. If not, they will ask for them when they call you in Prague.
- Your passport and visa (if applicable)
- Birth certificate or marriage certificate (if applicable)
- Proof of employment or income (if applicable)
A Czech Republic work permit is possible in less than a month!
One of the biggest barriers to getting a work permit in the Czech Republic is that it can take months to process.
But, if you are a citizen of the European Union or have an EU citizen spouse or parent, you can get your first Czech Republic working visa within three months!
You must prove that your partner and parent are part of this program.
This means they must have lived in a state part of the European Economic Area (the EU plus Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway).
If they live outside those countries but still hold citizenship there by birthright (i.e., through their parents), they may also qualify for this program.
The Last Word
It’s possible to get a Czech Republic work permit in less than a month! It should be quick and easy if you have all the documents.
