Employee Card

 Česky

Filing an Application for an Employee Card by a Foreign National Residing in the Territory of the CR on a Long-term Visa Issued for Some Other Purpose than Employment, Who Obtained an Employment Permit for Employment in Which He or She Intends to Conti

It will no longer be possible to issue a long-term visa for the purpose of employment.

However, a foreign national residing in the territory of the CR on a long-term visa long-term residence permit issued for some other purpose than employment is not prohibited from obtaining an employment permit and working in the CR.

If you are residing in the territory of the CR on a long-term visa or long-term residence permit issued for some other purpose than employment but, after arriving to the territory of the CR, you find a job, for which you will obtain an employment permit and you will want to continue to work in the same employment, file an application for an employee card before expiration of the validity of the long-term visa because it will no longer be possible to issue an employment permit to you based on your residence in the territory of the CR on a long-term residence permit, except in exceptional cases defined by the Employment Act (a holder of a long-term residence permit for the purpose of carrying on business + the cases specified in part b) here).

When filing this type of application, the job that you have is not required to appear in the central register of job vacancies that can be filled by holders of employee cards but the MoI CR will request a binding opinion statement from the Employment Agency of the CR on your further employment in the given job within the proceedings on your application.

You must attach the required attachments stated here to this application for an employee card.

This procedure does not apply to Special Cases / Non-Dual Mode of an Employee Card, during which a foreign national may still obtain an employment permit on the strength of which he or she will later apply for an employee card, nor does this procedure apply to a foreign national with free access to the labour market.
