Immigrants in the Czech Republic have better chances of finding employment than anywhere else in the European Union. According to new data published by Eurostat, the country topped the list with an employment rate of 78.8% among non-EU migrants living in the country.
Portugal, Poland, Estonia, Slovenia and Slovakia were also among the top countries in the list. All reported above 70% employment rate among the non-EU migrants living in their countries.
France, Belgium and Greece were at the bottom of the list.
As reported by Czech’s BRNO Daily, having the lowest unemployment rate in Europe makes the Czech Republic a more attractive job market for non-EU citizens as well as EU citizens from countries with high unemployment rates.
The Czech job market is currently able to accommodate high numbers of workers, including non-EU citizens. However, the long and complicated process required to obtain a visa makes employing non-EU citizens difficult.
