Adaptation and Integration Courses

NEW OBLIGATION FOR FOREIGN NATIONALS FROM THIRD COUNTRIES FROM THE 1st OF JANUARY 2021

Adaptation and integration courses „Welcome to the Czech Republic“

Every foreign national from third country who received a long-term or permanent residence permit since the 1st of January 2021, included, is required to attend adaptation and integration course within one year of the date of collecting the residence permit. You can find a list of all the groups of foreigners this obligation is required from, including all the exceptions in law, on the Ministry of Interior web pages.

What is the adaptation and integration course?

This course will help you to navigate faster and better in the Czech society and it will provide you with the basic information. You will learn the fundamental values of the Czech society and its culture, as well as your rights and obligations. Main topics will cover basic situations you can get into as a foreigner in a daily life (residence requirements, employment, education, healthcare system, social security, housing etc.) You will receive contact information to organizations and institutions which provide free consultations, language courses and other services to foreign nationals; those are especially Centres for Support of Integration of Foreigners and NGOs. These centres and organizations can help you solve various issues in future.

Who organizes the courses and where will they take place?

Courses will be administered solely by Centres for Support of Integration of Foreigners. There are 18 centres and it is fully up to your decision in which of them you will attend.

You can attend the course directly in the premises of the Integration centres (so called public course) or it can be organized by your employer in cooperation with one of the centres (so called non-public course). The content of the course will be the same in both cases.
