The incursion of the Russian army into the territory of Ukraine is a serious violation of international law by Russia that cannot be tolerated in any way. We do not want to stand idly by and, since our main weapon is the law and the law, we want to help the citizens of the invaded state to at least use it.

We willbe happy to help any person of Ukrainian nationality who is dealing with a legal problem, whether in connection with an unplanned arrival in the Czech Republic (e.g. housing, work permits, insurance, etc.) or in connection with planning next steps (family reunification, etc.).

We have contacted our attorneys to see if they are willing to get involved. Every single one of them agreed and volunteered. We can’t prevent war, but we can at least offer our time and help those who have fled war for a reduced fee.

Our system allows us to quickly get an assignment from a client and give advice remotely. We can also be contacted by phone or in person.

Solutions Tailored for You

Our team of experienced attorneys will help you solve any legal issue. Within 24 hours we’ll evaluate your situation and suggest a step-by-step solution, including all costs. The price for this proposal is only CZK 690, and this is refunded to you when you order service from us.

Below we add the basic information that applies to Ukrainian citizens and is valid as of 2 March 2022:

Residence, visas, asylum

Citizens of Ukraine are currently allowed to apply for a specific type of long-term visa.
Any citizen of Ukraine may enter the territory of the Czech Republic without a visa, only on the basis of a valid biometric passport, for a maximum period of 90 days. The Ukrainian border guards do not allow men of this age to cross the border at the moment, due to the general mobilization of men between the ages of 18 and 60.

If you do not have a biometric passport, it is possible to enter our territory after individual assessment. For children, a birth certificate is also accepted. Now citizens of Ukraine are rather not recommended to enter the lengthy asylum procedure. It seems to be more efficient to apply for a special long-term visa, which will be processed on the spot, and it is also possible to apply for a work permit and work immediately. However, every foreigner has the right to apply for asylum.

It is important to take out travel health insurance for the duration of your visa-free stay (this can also be taken out online).

It is the duty of every foreigner arriving in the Czech Republic to register within 3 days with the Police of the Czech Republic – at the Department of Residence of Foreigners of the Foreign Police Department (in case of accommodation in hotels or other official accommodation facilities, this duty is handled by the accommodation provider). If you are staying in private accommodation, you must go to the Police in person. Children (foreigners) under 15 years of age are not obliged to report their place of residence. They do not have to register.

Work, work permit

Following on from the above long-term visa, which is processed at the offices of the Ministry of the Interior (Department of Asylum and Migration Policy), it is then possible to find a job and obtain a work permit from the Labour Office .

Health insurance

To stay in the Czech Republic, you need to have health insurance. If you are employed, you are legally insured. If you are not employed here, you must have your own insurance.

If you are granted a special long-stay visa, you will automatically be covered by public health insurance.
For more information on health insurance and the provision of health services, please visit the Ministry of Health website.

Telephone contact with Ukraine

The Czech telephone operators T-Mobile and Vodafone provide free telephone connections to Ukraine.

Further information is also available directly from the Ministry of the Interior:

  • Email: ukrajina@mvcr.cz

Seriously, what could be better than that? While it sounds ‘too good to be true,’ I’m happy to report that the staff at DA are pros, and what’s more they are honestly dedicated to their awesome mission, which is to make quality legal services affordable for the average person. I find their prices very fair when compared to what I’ve usually paid for similar services, which means I (and my family and friends) can get the legal help I need without worrying about some black hole of never-ending fees. In my own experience with DA I’ve found everyone there very responsive, and emails and calls are answered in a timely manner. Their large staff also gives me confidence that any legal needs I have can be handled professionally, as there’s always someone with experience in my particular issue. Their head attorney also writes a regular blog and keeps up with all the latest legal trends, which means they as a business stay up-to-date. As someone who’s spent a fortune over the years on legal assistance, or tried to “go it alone” when I couldn’t afford legal help, I wish Dostupny Advokat had been around a long time ago. I highly encourage anyone who needs legal help to TRY THEM FIRST!

I work as a self-employed craftsman and I know my field very well. Unexpected events happen, however, and I sometimes have to deal with problems where I need quality legal advice. I don’t like calling legal offices, getting sucked into discussions with terms I don’t understand. Dostupnyadvokat.cz is different. My first time, they replied immediately (zobrazit více) and together we created a contract custom tailored to my exact needs. I continue to be very happy with both their work and their price.

I decided to withdraw from my operating lease prematurely and was charged a ridiculously high penalty, apparently because the car had been sold for a significantly lower price than its market value. I found it frustrating, so I turned to Dostupný advokát for help. They got to work on the case very fast and recommended (zobrazit více) several options on how to proceed. They also helped me prepare all necessary documentation. Thanks to them, I had to pay only a fraction of the original amount and saved tens of thousands of Crowns.
