The Czech Republic recently launched a digital nomad visa and residence permit program for citizens of seven countries.

Key Points:

  • The digital nomad program is available to foreign national employees of foreign companies, who must perform all work via remote means and are not permitted to work for a Czech company, or self-employed foreign nationals who hold a Czech business license.
  • Applicants must first apply for a visa at a Czech consulate. The visa is valid for up to one year, and after that year individuals can apply for a residence permit valid for up to two years.
  • This program is currently available only to nationals of Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, South Korea, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Additional Information: More information about applying for the Czech digital nomad program is available here and here.
