Information on capacity and quotas - employment cards, business and dates of appointments

Up-to-date information for submitting applications for the above purpose.

As part of the need to secure labor for the Czech labor market and the related concept of targeted economic migration, the Government of the Czech Republic decided to introduce quotas for receiving applications for employee cards and long-term visas for business purposes, by Government Decree No. 233/2021 Coll. The main goal of the concept of targeted economic migration is to strengthen the influx of skilled labor from selected countries to the Czech Republic.

An annual quota of 300 applications for an employee card was set for the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Ankara, of which 100 applications under the Highly Qualified Staff Program or the Key and Scientific Staff Program;

0 applications in the Qualified Employee Program; and 12 applications for a long-stay business visa (of which 6 are key and scientific staff under the Program).

Both of these quotas are non-exceedable, ie the embassy may not accept more applications than stipulated by a government decree. Both quotas will be divided equally over 12 months.
