BEC Newsletter September: News in the Immigration Law

BEC monthly newsletter 9/2019


News in the Immigration Law  
      September's here: students will be back soon, streets will fill up, and the leisurely mood of summer will be chased away.
      We'll be busy, too - we're entering our 9th season! In its first quarter, you can join us for a startups feedback session (September), a talk on the freelance way of doing business (October), or a seminar with an immigration law expert to help you wade through the recent changes (November).    

An amendment has been in effect since 1 August, although very few offices actually know how precisely the changes manifest in practice. Still, we've assembled these key points to pay attention to.

  "In 2008, my schedule book almost ended my life in the Czech Republic." 
Read another story from Bruno Zalubil's life in Brno. We bet many of you have been there, too.
