Work in Czech Republic

First, a foreigner needs to find a job in the Czech Republic and his/her future employer must consult with the Employment Office and express the intention to employ a foreigner in a specified position. After the consultation, the position must be advertised at least for 30 days. If the position cannot be filled by a Czech national, the foreigner can apply for a work permit for such position.

The foreigner usually applies for the work permit before he/she enters the Czech Republic. He/she applies in writing (application form) to the regional Public Employment Office; some special annexes to the application form are needed (as a photocopy of his/her travel document, a statement of the employer that he/she will employ the foreigner etc.) He/she can be also represented by his/her future employer or by an empowered representative. The administrative fee for the work permit application is CZK 500.
