Expat Services

For over 20 years the Prague Post has drawn staff from all over the world to fill the pages of this unique English-language newspaper. Many of our journalists, editors and support staff came and come from abroad and decided to make the Czech Republic their new home.

In order to make their stays as smooth as possible, our human resource professionals have offered a wide variety of assistance. These services include processing work permits, communication with state offices and helping to find an apartment or an appropriate school for children, just to name a few. What could have otherwise been an unpleasant and time-consuming series of tasks for newcomers, the Prague Post Ltd. is able to make into a comfortable and safe experience. After years of taking care of our own staff we have gained the know-how and the intricate ins and outs within the visa and work permit system.

Now we are offering these same services to the rest of the Czech Republic's international community. Our skilled professionals can make your arrival and first days in your new home pleasant and free of worries about the legality of your stay. Whether you are changing addresses, getting married, seeking a business license or just trying to get a work visa we can help.
