It can be challenging as a foreigner to comply to the requirements of the czech authorities. I have experience first-hand, because I’m not Czech, so when I started my first firm in Prague several years ago I was amazed how much more complicated getting a residence permit or setting up a firm seemed to be than in any other country that I lived in previously.
I noticed over time that it was not only me, but virtually every foreigner is facing the same hurdles. According to me, the key problem is that it takes a foreigner to understand a foreigner. Apart from the language (speaking English doesn’t automatically mean: understanding English), even a bigger barrier is often a foreigner’s concept of what is logical and right vs. ‘the czech way’.
Having lived long enough here to recognize the difficulties typical for non-Czechs, I’m confident the Alexio.cz team is able circumvent most of them, making getting to Czech Republic and doing business here a pleasant experience.
