IMPORTANT NOTICE - Quotas for Economic Migration

On August 26, 2019, the Government approved a decree setting maximum annual numbers of applications for employee cards and entrepreneurship long-term visas that can be accepted at diplomatic missions. Quotas apply only to the diplomatic missions stated therein. Acceptance of applications at other diplomatic missions is not limited.

At the same time, the Government expanded the number of States participating in programs (previously regimes), which allow for an expedited submission of applications for employee cards of qualified workers, by Moldavia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and India.

Quotas are established by the Governmental decision based on agreement of concerned ministries and The Council of Economic and Social Agreement of the Czech Republic. The quotas take effect on September 1, 2019.

The embassy will accept on a monthly basis the maximum number of applications based on the total quotas. Guidelines for appointment scheduling will be published at the embassy website.

The quotas for Ethiopia can be found in Governmental Decree in attachment (in Czech only) and they cannot be exceeded, i.e. the embassy cannot accept more applications than allowed by the quotas.
