For a smooth processing of your visa application, please mind the following items:
In order to take up employment in Germany, third-country nationals usually need a work permit. In principle, this also applies to those who have a residence permit from another EU country and therefore are allowed to stay in another EU country for up to 90 out of 180 days.
The activities of executives and business travelers are not considered as employment, if they are carried out for up to 90 out of 180 days, as well as certain activities, such as for example voluntary service, internships or participation in company training that can be carried out for up to 90 days within twelve months.
If you have any doubts as to whether your intended activity is gainful employment and you need a work permit for this, you can contact the embassy by email to Konsulat enclosing a scan of your Czech residence permit and a precise description of the activity.
The website www.make-it-in-germany.com offers orientation for taking up employment in Germany, too.
Citizens of Australia, Israel, Japan, Canada, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand and the USA can apply for a work permit together with a residence permit directly in Germany at the local immigration office. For other citizens, the work permit is issued with the visa to be applied for before entry.
Foreign nationals who have the legal status of long-term resident in another EU country (in the Czech Republic: „trvalý pobyt - rezident ES“ or „permanent residence - resident EU“) can apply for a work permit together with a residence permit directly in Germany at the local immigration office.
Due to the new version of Section 26 (2) of the Employment Regulation (Western Balkans Regulation), as of 1 January 2021, applications under this regulation for nationals of Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, Northern Macedonia and Serbia can only be submitted to the competent mission abroad in one of these six states.
