In 2019, Foreigners is celebrating its 10 year anniversary! 10 years of helping expats and international students feel at home in the Czech Republic and also dealing with all the obstacles that might come up in the uneasy lives of people dealing with relocation. 10 years of taking care of your accommodations and solving problems related to your flats. 10 years of providing various types of services like visas, employee cards, immigration packages, translations, etc. What has changed during the past decade? What has remained the same?
Hello guys! My name is Hana Lahodová and I am an intern at Foreigners Prague from the beginning of January 2019. I am handling PR and marketing tasks for the local office. In this article, I would like to share with you my experience that I gained recently and give you a piece of advice that will save you time.
When you are applying for a visa in the Czech Republic, remember it will probably take between 2 and 3 months or even longer to get it. The official time limit to get your visa is 90 days stated by the Czech immigration law. Nevertheless, it might happen that the embassy will exceed this limit. Therefore, it is better for you to apply for longer health insurance (1 year and 2-3 months or longer). Why?
So, you found a place to stay, took the first tour to know the city, and met a lot of new friends in one of our MeetUps. Maybe now you are willing to explore Prague a little more, but sometimes it can be a bit of a challenge to orient yourself in its cultural life. As always, we’re here to help, check this article full of artistic information!
