Benefit 1: The EU is Your Oyster
Did you know a Czech passport allows free entry into 27 other EU countries without a visa, making it possible to live and work in any EU country with no restrictions whatsoever? With Czech citizenship, you can hold dual citizenship, which means you do not have to give up your existing foreign citizenship when becoming a Czech.
Benefit 2: Knowledge and Welfare at Your Fingertips
No matter your life stage, maybe you’re planning on (or returning to) study, thinking about relocating, starting a family or even retiring in the Czech Republic. As a Czech citizen, access to inexpensive education, health care and parental leave (for new mothers of up to 3 years) has you covered.
- Europe is home to some of the best and most established educational institutions. Oh, and studying in the Czech Republic is free for citizens! Yes, you read correctly, and that is whether you are studying for a bachelor’s, master’s or doctorate.
- Free medical treatment is also available to citizens and permanent residents, through the Czech Republic’s universal health system.
- New mothers can take time to cherish and nurture children through some of their most formative years, with less pressure to return straight back to the workforce after welcoming a new family member.
- With a high standard of living and an affordable lifestyle, the Czech Republic could be just the place to kick back and relax into your retirement
Benefit 3: Fast, Not Furious Commuting
In comparison to many Western countries, Czech public transport is more cost-effective and efficient. With a dense train network supported by buses, you will find the public transport system in the Czech Republic affordable and reliable, making the country easily accessible for your daily commute or travel pleasure.
Use this new-found ease of mobility to truly explore the beauty of Czechia. From the bustle of big cities to discovering smaller regional towns and the rolling countryside, there is something to delight everyone.
Benefit 4: Lifestyle Perks
Renowned for its support of artists, writers and a more bohemian lifestyle, expect a calmer pace of life in the Czech Republic. Think about time-out taken to enjoy shared restaurant meals and drinks at the bar. Along with a sense of community, built through smiling at strangers, greeting shopkeepers and so much more. The Czech Republic, with less of a ‘stress’ culture, gives you a lifestyle worth living.
Benefit 5: Closer to the Action, Historically Speaking
This nation’s culture dates to the pre-historical era so there is lots to explore.
Scrub up on your architecture as the Czech Republic has a large array including Baroque, Gothic, Renaissance, Romanesque, Classicism, Art-Nouveau, Cubism, and Functionalism around the country, as well as being home to the most castles in Europe. Not to mention all-new histories to explore throughout the EU, right on your new Czech doorstep.
