Expat guide to the Czech Republic launched
We’re happy to announce the launch of our expatriate guide to the Czech Republic. Whether you need information about working in the Czech Republic, getting a visa, finding accommodation, the Czech education system, health or financial services, our guide to the Czech Republic will help you get going.
With EU accession in 2004, many obstacles for foreigners living in the Czech Republic disappeared. In 2008 the Czech Republic had a vibrant expat community of about 430,000 people. This is partially due to the fact that many international companies choose the Czech Republic to establish a European headquarters, right in the heart of Europe. While the standard of living in the Czech Republic almost reaches that of Western Europe, the cost of living is still comparatively low. Boosted by these advantages, net migration to the Czech Republic has risen more than tenfold, from 0.06% of total population in 2000 to 0.8% in 2007.
As with any move abroad, life in the Czech Republic is almost sure to differ from what you are accustomed to in your home country. Our expatriate guide will help you with everything you need to consider when moving to the Czech Republic. And if you still have doubts, or simply want to meet other expatriates, you can exchange ideas or ask for help in our expat community in the Czech Republic.
