About

The Czech Republic does not have a specific Digital Nomad Visa, but you SOME digital nomads can benefit from The Zivno visa or “Zivnostenske opravneni”. This permit is meant for foreigners moving to the Czech Republic as non-EU citizens who intend to work as contractors/freelancers or run their own business. Take into consideration that if you are a digital nomad that is not a freelancer with a Business Plan for the Czech Republic, you will not be able to apply.


The most typical applicants are English Teachers (since language schools usually do not offer employment, just contract-based work), software developers, or other freelancers (tattoo artists, etc.).


You need to apply in the Czech Embassy of your country. Some nationalities like the American, Canadian and Mexican can apply in any office in the world. The day of your interview, the agent will ask you about your business plan, education, experience and about your knowledge of the Czech Tax System.
