The immigration way

The immigration process, as a rule, begins from a tourist visa or from an invitation to the Czech Republic. VISACZ company helps to get a visitor’s visa to the Czech Republic for the period of 1 to 90 days for the single and multiple entries. It is possible to receive a visitor’s visa on the following grounds:

  • a letter of invitation from your family (a relative/spouse),

  • a letter of invitation from an employer (for an internship, for upgrade skills and for further opening of a business visa),

  • a letter of invitation from a co-founder of a firm (if there are several directors and you are one of them, others can issue a letter of invitation for you).

Next step – a long-term visa (a residence permit), which could be issued for the half a year period and must be extended in the territory of the Czech Republic. At this stage, an immigrant should make a final decision about the basis on which he will stay in the country. 

There are only five grounds on which it is possible to extend a visa in the territory of the Czech Republic:

  • extension of visa on the basis of participation of legal persons (business visa),

  • extension of visa on the basis of private entrepreneur (actually also business visa),

  • extension of visa for the purpose of studies (student visa),

  • extension of visa for the purpose of employment (employee card – job at the Czech firm),

  • extension of visa on the basis of family reunification.

The last stage of immigration to the Czech Republic is getting permanent residence. At this stage, an immigrant becomes a full member of the Czech Community with all benefits and social guarantees (except of suffrage).

Please note, that a foreigner can receive a permanent residence if he had been living in the Czech Republic for five years and had a residence permit. A permanent residence is issued for five or ten years. Another stage is obtaining citizenship in the EU – but practically it doesn’t differ from a permanent residence.
