 Česky

Lodging an application for an Intra-Company Employee Transfer Card

An application for an Intra-Company Employee Transfer Card must be lodged in person either with the local Embassy of the Czech Republic (in cases with good reason, the foreign national may request the embassy to waive the obligation of lodging the application in person). The foreign national is entitled to lodge the application only at the embassy in his/her state of citizenship, or else in the state that issued the travel document held by the foreign national, or in the state for which the foreign national has a long-term or permanent residence permit. This condition is not required of a foreign national who is the citizen of one of the states that appears on the list of countries whose citizens are entitled to lodge an application for a long-term visa or a long-term or permanent residence permit at any Embassy of the Czech Republic (Ordinance No. 429/2010 Coll.).

If the foreign national or commercial corporation to which the foreign national has been or is to be transferred is participating in a government-approved programme and if expressly allowed according to the conditions of such government-approved programme, the foreign national is not required to lodge the application at an Embassy of the Czech Republic and the commercial corporation within which or to which the foreign national is to be transferred may lodge an application on his/her behalf in the territory of the Czech Republic with the Ministry of the Interior Department of Asylum and Migration.

An application for the Intra-Company Employee Transfer Card may be lodged using the "Application for Long-Term Residence" form.

All submitted documents must be presented in their original version with an officially certified copy into the Czech language. Supporting documents must be no more than 180 days old, with the exception of the travel document and the foreign national’s photograph, if it corresponds to his/her real appearance.

If the foreign national or commercial corporation to which the foreign national has been transferred is participating in a government-approved programme the conditions of which allow certain supporting documents of the application to be substituted, the following items supporting the application may be substituted by a confirmation issued by such commercial corporation:

  • proof of arranged accommodation in the territory of the Czech Republic,

  • transfer letter,

It also applies that before a long-term visa for the purpose of collecting an Intra-Company Employee Transfer Card (D/VR) may be entered into the travel document, the foreign national is required to present proof of travel medical insurance and, on request, to provide proof of payment of the insurance premium. The foreign national must present this document not to the Ministry of the Interior Department of Asylum and Migration Policy, but to an embassy and this requirement concerns only the period from entry into the territory of the Czech Republic until the foreign national begins to be covered by public healthcare insurance according to the Public Healthcare Act - basically the period from entering the visa into the travel document until commencing employment (as specified in the submitted documents).

In the case of a foreign national arriving in the country otherwise than on a D/VR, proof of medical insurance is not necessary if the foreign national is to become a participant of public healthcare insurance once he/she commences employment.
