IMPACT – MEDIUM
What is the change? The Czech government has approved a measure that would require foreign residents to complete integration courses.
What does the change mean? If enacted as law by Parliament, foreigners seeking long-term residence permits for employment will be required to take coursework within one year of their arrival to help them integrate into Czech society.
Background: The measure seeks to amend the Law of Foreigners by adding integration requirements that are intended to encourage foreign workers to settle into Czech society more easily. The number of expatriate employees settling in the country has increased dramatically in the past four years.
BAL Analysis: Foreign workers intending to apply for long-term residency should prepare for the possibility of additional requirements regarding their knowledge of Czech culture and civil society.
