Government Programmes of Economic Migration and Their Current Use
In September 2019, the government programmes of economic migration were harmonised and simplified, which resulted in three basic projects: Qualified Worker Programme, Highly Qualified Worker Programme, and Key and Research Staff Programme. All these programmes have one thing in common: they can react to a current situation on the job market, simplifying and accelerating migration procedures. Participation in one of these programmes gives Czech companies a competitive advantage in employing foreign workers. At present, the programmes also fulfil another function – at the time when Czech embassies abroad have restricted the acceptance of applications for work visas, the programmes are the only way to obtain foreign workers.
