EU Blue cards

Information for applicants for a EU Blue card 


Approval of your application for a long-term residence permit - Blue Card

In the case of a positive assessment of your application which was submitted to the Ministry of Interior, this office will contact you by telephone and arrange a meeting to provide you with your long-term residence permit - Blue Card. If you cannot be contacted by phone, you will be asked in writing to the address you provided in the application as contact address.

In the case of an application submitted to a Czech embassy, the embassy will invite you to present yourself and receive a visa for a stay over 90 days for the purpose of receiving a residence permit - Blue Card.

After assessing your application for a Blue Card, the Ministry of Interior shall inform your employer that you have met the conditions for a Blue Card.

An EU Blue Card is issued with a period of validity that is 3 months longer than the period of time for which the contract of employment was concluded, but the maximum period of validity is 2 years. A Blue Card can be renewed.

The residence permit - Blue Card will be issued in the form of a residence card with biometric data. The entire process of issuing such a card is described here.

Before issuing the residence permit - Blue Card, you will be provided with a confirmation of having met the conditions for a Blue Card. This serves to confirm that you are entitled to reside in the CR and to work even before the residence permit - Blue Card with biometric data is issued.
