Procedure of a foreigner in obtaining employment in the Czech Republic

The basic precondition for entering the pilot project is legal employment in the Czech Republic. A foreigner may perform work in the Czech Republic provided that he or she has a valid work permit and a valid residence visa for the purpose of employment .

At the moment when the employer receives a permit to obtain employees from abroad from a locally competent labor office in the Czech Republic, the foreigner must apply to the same labor office for a work permit for the job for which the employer has the above permit, usually before his arrival in the Czech Republic.
However, he may be represented in the proceedings by the employer or another representative authorized by him, on the basis of and within the scope of the written power of attorney. As soon as a foreigner has applied for a work permit, he or she can apply for a residence visa for the purpose of employment
at the embassy of the Czech Republic in his / her country .

In addition, since October 2005, the possibility of obtaining a visa for a stay of more than 90 days for the purpose of employment has been simplified so that the administrative visa procedure is carried out at the same time as the employment permit procedure . An alien who does not yet have a work permit may now only submit the number of the application for a work permit with the information with which he / she applied for such a permit to the application for a visa for a stay of more than 90 days for the purpose of employment .
