Working and volunteering

Volunteering

Volunteering options in the Czech Republic usually centre around teaching English, assisting with refugees or displaced persons, or helping people in need. Volunteering organisations sometimes have a religious or Christian undertone, and volunteers are sometimes expected to pay for the experience.

Prague Volunteer (www.praguevolunteer.com) is a nonprofit company that arranges trips and stays for native English speakers with the aim of teaching English and raising language literacy.

Work

Visitors are only permitted to stay in the Czech Republic for 90 days without a visa. Working in the country is possible only with a valid work visa and long-term residency permit (povolení k dlouhodobému pobytu), issued by the Ministry of the Interior (www.mvcr.cz). The process is normally carried out in conjunction with a Czech-based employer and the procedure for obtaining permits should be initiated before arrival.

  • Just Landed (www.justlanded.com) Helpful resource for sorting out the bureaucracy and getting started.
