We had an amazing time during our last Women Club meeting! We welcomed new ladies into our group which is always nice! Then, Elena taught us how to use black inks and even those who have never painted anything before were able to create something! It was really fun!

How to Handle Changes in the Immigration Law?

A new amendment valid from 2 August brings several changes to the immigration law and is a little bit confusing and complicates life not only for Expats but also for Czech people who married foreigners and for EU citizens. 

These changes include for example the obligation to purchase comprehensive health insurance, changes in administration fees, long-term residence for the purpose of study, conditions for issuing employment cards for the purposes of agency employment, the renaming of a residence permit document for EU citizens, or new identification documents for third-country citizens containing biometric data.


All of our services are free of charge.
