There are no specific rules related to the employment of European Union (“EU”) citizens.
Limitations are provided by the law with respect to non-EU citizens:
- non-EU citizens must obtain a work permit (through the relevant Labour Office) and a residence visa (through any Czech embassy or consulate abroad) for the purpose of employment before beginning work, or they must be holders of a Green Card, which comprises both a work permit and a residence visa. The Green Card may be obtained by foreigners who are citizens of countries listed by the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs.
- non-EU citizens must obtain a short time visa (lasting up to 90 days) or a long time visa (lasting up to one year) at any Czech embassy or consulate abroad.
