Like a few other countries in the world that have an active migration policy, the Czech Republic selects among those interested in immigrating to the Czech Republic on the basis of points.
The Government of the Czech Republic regularly announces binding scoring criteria according to their importance for the selection of the most suitable foreign experts and for their successful integration into society.
A number of factors are important for successful integration into society. These are taken into account in the selection criteria.
In the pilot project, you will therefore be evaluated according to the following criteria
- employment in the Czech Republic,
- previous work experience,
- acquired education,
- experience of living in the Czech Republic,
- language skills,
- and will also be taken into account by your family.
Based on the facts stated in your application and which have been substantiated by credible documents, a specialized computer program will prepare your score. Points are therefore awarded on the basis of objective facts and no human factor interferes in the whole process.
The criteria and their point evaluation are shown in the following overview table.
For some criteria (employment, work experience and educational attainment) you must obtain a certain minimum number of points. Without it, you cannot be included in the project.
In order to be selected in the pilot project and to be able to enjoy all the benefits and entitlements resulting from participating in it, you must obtain at least 25 out of a maximum of 66 points.
If you do not get 25 points, you will not be excluded from the computer database of those interested in joining the pilot project. You may supplement your education or language skills over time to earn a few more points and exceed the required 25 points.
