Permanent Residency Permit

A Permanent Residence Permit (trval pobyt) may be applied for on the basis of:

Humanitarian reasons - extremely rare,
Living continuously in CZ for a period of 5 years,
Being married to a CZ national for at least two years.
Nowadays the applicant also needs to pass a Czech language test (!)

Probably the biggest advantage of the Permanent Residence Permit is that the holder no longer needs to have a Work Permit or needs to register his Trade License at Commercial Court.

The processing time for the application is up to 60 days if submitted in Czech Republic.

The validity of the 'permanent' Residence Permit is 10 years, and can be extended every time by 10 years, between 90 and 30 days before date of expiration.

While many people qualify for the UK Ancestry Visa based on holding a Commonwealth passport with a UK born grandmother or grandfather, we have found that if you have a grandparent born in the UK, or if your mother is British or your father is British, then there are several scenarios where you can claim British Nationality and the right to hold a British Passport. This stems from Britain’s collection of British Colonies, British Protectorates and British Protected States in the middle of last century and the Nationality rules concerning what are now the countries of the Commonwealth.
