Czechia’s New Opportunity: Migration Program Opens Doors for Indonesian Students Seeking Work


The Czech Republic’s authorities have announced that the country has approved a new migration programme that aims to attract Indonesian students of polytechnic universities.

According to the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Czechia, this programme will allow around 300 students from selected Indonesian polytechnic universities to work in the country for a period of two years.

As it has been explained, by launching this labour migration pilot project from Indonesia, the Czech Republic wants to tackle its labour shortages in the industrial sector.

The selected students from Indonesia will work for a period of two years in the Škoda Group company. They will be working as welders, locksmiths, operating mechanics, and repairmen, among many other positions that are experiencing shortages.

Commenting on the programme, the Minister of Industry and Trade Jozef Síkela said that the project is supported by the government of Indonesia.

“The pilot project was supported by the Indonesian government. Indonesian high school and college graduates will gain the necessary experience in the field, and at the same time, the project will contribute to the deepening of the economic cooperation between both countries,” the statement of Minister Síkela reads.

Moreover, the Minister also said that they expect to deepen the relationship with Indonesia further and, at the same time, stressed that they will be working on future projects together.

“We are also testing Indonesia as another possible source country for the economic migration. Similar projects are being implemented by Indonesians in various European countries,” Minister Síkela added.

In addition to the above-mentioned, Czechia has also launched another programme for foreign highly skilled workers.

The new digital nomad programme aims to attract skilled workers to the Czech Republic, allowing them to apply for a residence permit and reside in the country.

“The digital nomad programme is aimed at a group of highly qualified and top IT workers – so-called digital nomads, who will thus get the opportunity to apply for a residence permit in the Czech Republic,” the Ministry’s statement reads.

The programme will be limited to citizens of Australia, Japan, Canada, South Korea, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Northern Ireland, the United States, and Taiwan only.

Only the citizens of the countries mentioned above will be allowed to apply for a residence permit and work remotely from the territory of the Czech Republic.

The application for residence permits by digital nomads can be made at the Czech Republic’s embassies abroad. Applications for residence permits by these groups of foreigners will be processed within 45 days.
