Why I Should Have A Permanent Residency?

As an EU citizen, you’re not required to apply for permanent residence in the Czech Republic. If you’re planning to stay in the country for a while though you’ll find that having a Czech permanent residence permit brings some crucial advantages.

Two of the most important benefits of permanent residency over temporary residency concern your eligibility for a mortgage and public health insurance. Without this permit, it may be difficult to register your vehicle, purchase real estate, get a mortgage or even park in some districts of Prague with prepaid parking zones.

After holding a permanent residence permit for 5 years, you can apply for a Czech citizenship.
