Significant Increase in Number of International Workers in Czechia

Similar to other EU countries, Czechia is also dealing with labour shortages. According to a survey from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), labour shortages have prompted Czech employers to look for workers from other countries.

The number of foreign workers in Czechia increased by nearly 30,700 last year, reaching more than 823,900 in December 2023, or 2.5 times more compared to the statistics from the end of 2015, according to the statistics from the Labor Office. The same source notes that the majority of them are nationals from Ukraine.

Based on the figures from the Czech Statistical Office (CSU), in the first three quarters of last year, a total of 4.23 million workers in Czechia were registered.

In addition, at the end of last year, labour offices registered a total of 823,945 international workers of whom just under 409,800 were from EU countries.
