Czech citizenship is – as perceived by the law – the highest attainable level of a foreigner’s integration in the Czech society. From 1st January 2014 there is in force a new law on state citizenship of the Czech Republic (186/2013 Sb.). In some aspects, the new law is more friendly to immigrants. For instance, there is a possibility to get the citizenship after 10 years of the residence despite of the fact that the person does not yet have the permanent residence for 5 years. Also, the propriety issues are only reviewed for past 3 years, not longer. On the other hand, the new law brings about more difficult proof of Czech language knowledge, more difficult proof of indemnity and others. The new is possibility to have two citizenships, thus there is no need to give up the previous citizenship in order to get the new one.
