EMPLOYMENT OF FOREIGNERS: EMPLOYEE CARD
For the purposes of employing foreign nationals, citizens of the EU, the EEA, and Switzerland
(hereinafter EU citizens) are not considered as foreigners under Czech law. Therefore they have the
same position as citizens of the Czech Republic and the Work / Residence Permit is not requested in the
matter of their employment in the Czech Republic.
In the case of EU citizens, the employer is obliged to inform the relevant regional department of the
Labour Office about such employment. The EU citizen is then required to report the place of his or her
residence to the Foreign Police, unless the provider of his/her accommodation has already done so.
Therefore, this article only provides information concerning the employment of third-country citizens,
and, for simplifying the terminology, refers to them as “foreigners”.

under the same conditions as those enjoyed by children, pupils, and students of Czech nationality at all
levels of education, from pre-school care to university studies.
