When referring to the immigration services provided by us, foreign investors and natural persons wishing to relocate to Czech Republic for work or personal reasons can benefit from our advice. Foreigners must know that Czech Republic, a country that is a member state of the European Union (EU), distinguishes between EU citizens and non-EU citizens, but both categories are entitled to apply for the Czech citizenship after living here for a specific amount of time.
Thus, EU citizens benefit from the right of free movement and can enjoy the same legal treatment as it is in the case of Czech citizens, in most of the areas prescribed by the immigration law. However, non-EU nationals must comply with more stringent regulations, which will require them to apply for a Czech long term residence permit or temporary residence permit, based on the duration of their stay and the purpose of the visit. In this case, our immigration lawyer can be of help, in legal matters such as:
• applying for the EU Blue Card – a type of permit that is addressed to non-EU nationals who have a university degree and who will work in Czech Republic for a period of at least three months;
• registrations with the local institutions – this is a necessary step upon the arrival in this country and it can refer to registrations with the local police, the tax office, the social security system and other similar institutions;
• applying for a temporary residence permit – the legislation stipulates that EU citizens are not obliged to apply for this permit, but if they want to be the holders of this document, which provides specific rights, they can apply for it;
• assistance in applying for a long-term visa in Czech Republic – the procedure must be started in the country in which the foreigner is currently a resident;
• legal assistance for businessmen who want to start a business here and who are interested in moving to Czech Republic.
