Recognition of Professional Qualification - Third Country Nationals

How to proceed when my profession is regulated and the Act on Recognition of Professional Qualification doesn't apply to me?

If your profession is regulated, you need to search the directory of regulated professions (Ministry of Education) and find out the requirements for the performance of your profession.

Requirements may be very specific and different for each profession. They may be the level of education, practical experience or examination in the Czech Republic.

Under the name of your profession in the directory is specified how your competence is to be demonstrated. If one of the requirements is a completed education, you need to have the document of completed education recognized (university education, secondary or higher education).
