Moving Procedures for Obtaining Education in Czech Republic

Moving Procedures for Obtaining Education in Czech Republic

According to the legislation of the Czech Republic, foreigners studying at Czech educational institutions must obtain a long-term residence permit for the purpose of “studies”. The residence permit will be issued for one year and can be repeatedly prolonged.

A Holder of the Student Residence permit has the Following Rights:

  • The right to reside in the Czech Republic during the period for which the residence permit is issued
  • Free movement within the Schengen Area
  • Students can work part-time.
  • Discounts on travel tickets, reduced-price meals, student discounts for museums, cinemas etc.
  • The right to participate in international exchange programs

Where to Submit Documents and Receive a ‘Student’ Residence Permit?

The application must be submitted at the nearest Czech Consulate, in the student’s country of residence, or in a selected neighboring country, if there is no consulate in the student’s country.

You can apply for a long term residence permit at the MOI office in the territory of the Czech Republic under the following conditions:

a. You are a holder of a long-term visa (for more than 90 days) for any purpose, except long-term visa for seasonal work or extra work,
b. You are a holder of a long-term residence permit for another purpose issued in the territory of Czech Republic,
c. You are a holder of a long-term residence permit issued for study by another EU member state.

Can I work during my studies?

Yes, you can work up to 20 hours a week if you attend an accredited program at an educational institution. Your work should not interfere with your studies.
If you are a third country student, you do not need an employment permit. The employer has to notify the Public Employment Service when you start to work.

Can I work after finishing my studies?

Following the successful conclusion of your studies, you can apply for a working permit:
1. You can apply for the Employee card anytime, even during your studies,
2. If you conclude your studies and you still have a valid visa/residence permit, you can apply for a “job seeker visa,” which will give you additional nine months after finishing studies to find a job or start your own business. The applicants have to be included in an accredited program, not a language course.
