If applying on the basis of working as a freelancer, one must also earn more than 1.5 times the average Czech gross annual salary (which would equate to more than CZK 60,000 monthly). If employed by a foreign company, that company must employ more than 50 people worldwide.
The Czech Republic’s new digital nomad visa hopes to attract skilled workers
Envisioned as an economic booster, the Digital Nomad Program aims to capitalize on the changing trends in international employee mobility and the rise of freelancers, especially prominent in the IT sector. Other countries, both within and outside the European Union, are embracing similar strategies to harness the economic potential of digital nomads.
The new digital nomad visa is expected to be a popular choice for citizens of these countries seeking an easy way to establish residence in the country. Other visa options require an employment contract or freelance business contract (Živnostenský list), and can be imposing to set up within the first few months of moving to the country.
