Work Permit Waiver

 

As of July 1, 2024, citizens of Australia, Canada, Israel, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, UK and USA no longer require a work permit issued by the Labor Authority of the Czech Republic to be able to work in CZE.

This has no bearing on the need to obtain a visa. Citizens of these countries who wish to work in CZE continue to apply for a Schengen visa for the purpose of employment (for certain professions) or long-term residence permit (always), including for employee card. The facilitation lies only in waiving the requirement for work permit.

Additional information may be found in the attached flier.
