The new program is mostly aimed at IT specialists who plan to live in the Czech Republic but work for foreign companies.
Currently, the program is limited to eight countries. Citizens of Australia, Japan, Canada, South Korea, New Zealand, Great Britain, USA and Taiwan will be able to participate. An IT specialist usually works on several projects in different parts of the world at the same time. Due to the nature of their work, digital nomads cannot be in classic labor-legal relations both due to the one-time nature of assigned tasks and from the point of view of possible conflicts of several labor relations and related duties.
The program applies to employees of a foreign company who work long-term remotely in the Czech Republic with the help of telecommunications. In this case, the foreigner remains in labor relations with his foreign commercial company all the time and does not enter into labor relations in the Czech Republic.
The government’s statement does not contain information on minimum wage requirements.
