If we talk about the disadvantages of moving to the Czech Republic, then the most significant of them is the difficulties in finding a job — it is sometimes difficult for the Czechs themselves to find a good job, because no one is waiting for you as an additional workforce. We’ll talk about this in more detail below.
If you decide to live in the Czech Republicand, tyou must take care of the legality of your stay in the country. There are several stages that will need to be completed before obtaining Czech citizenship, such as:
Long—term visa (dlouhé vizum) – “test mode”. Such a visa allows you to stay in the country for a maximum of 90 days for 180 days, and for how long it will be given depends on the grounds. To get it, you need specific reasons, for example, studying at language courses, and not just “I’m going to live in the Czech Republic.” You can also come for a maximum of 90 days in a half-year without a visa, but you cannot work at the same time.
Residence permit (dlouhodobý pobyt) — it can be obtained during the validity of a long-term visa at the department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Czech Republic. It is given, as a rule, for 1-2 years. At the same time, it is better to really stay there on the territory of the country as long as possible, because if you visit the Czech Republic “on the spur of the moment”, you will most likely not see the right to permanent residence (permanent residence). When applying for permanent residence, the period of stay will be considered and there must be 5 years of continuous stay, without taking into account the time when the person was not in the country. If the Ministry of Internal Affairs finds that you have been away for too long without reason (for example, a serious illness of a relative), they may refuse to extend your visa or permanent residence.
