To avoid complicated administrative procedures in the future because of Brexit, PraguExpats recommends all UK citizens apply for residency in the Czech Republic. You can apply for 2 types of residencies.

Temporary residency of EU citizen

Temporary residency for EU citizens doesn’t have an expiration date. The entire process is completed under the power of attorney and you won’t need to visit the immigration office. With the power of attorney, we will apply for a temporary residency for you. Once it is approved, we will accompany you to collect your residency card.

After 5 years with a temporary residence permit (or 3 years with a business purpose), you can apply for a permanent residence permit.
Most of our British clients’ temporary residency files are approved within 25 days.

Permanent residency of EU citizen

As an EU citizen, you can apply for permanent residency after 5 years of continuously living in the Czech Republic, without having a temporary residency certificate for the country. Payment statements from health insurance and social tax offices adequately demonstrate proof of ones 5-year continuous residency in the Czech Republic.   Most of our British clients’ temporary residency files are approved within 60 days.

If you have any further question don´t hesitate to contact us!

Additionally, we have a short business day on Sundays due to Brexit and high flow of British clients. Please schedule an appointment if you want to meet us on Sunday!
