To address labor shortages, the Czech Republic has launched a portal called ‘Work in Czechia’ to attract technology experts from countries with thriving tech ecosystems like Nigeria.

The portal aims to simplify the relocation process for foreign workers. “When you know the date from which your visa is valid, you can choose how to travel to the Czech Republic. Whether by plane or other means, everything will be taken care of, and you won’t spend a penny,” states the website, workinczechia.tech.

Czechia has been dealing with labor shortages for a long time. A survey from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) revealed that these shortages have driven Czech employers to seek foreign workers.

In related news, Czechia’s new work portal aims to attract Nigerian and other tech experts. The number of foreign workers in the country increased by nearly 30,700 in 2023, reaching over 823,900 by December. About 409,800 of these workers were from EU countries, according to the Labour Office statistics.

The visa sponsorship portal is part of Czechia’s strategy to attract professionals in technological fields, joining other European countries in this effort. The European Institute for Innovation and Technology (EIT) launched the Deep Tech Talent Initiative in 2022, aiming to upskill one million people in deep tech fields by 2025.

“The website Workinczechia.EU provides foreign talents with a comprehensive overview of life and employment in our country, from visa and immigration details to cultural activities,” said Jan Michal, CEO of the CzechInvest agency.
