Home search

IBS conducts an exhaustive search for the most suitable properties meeting the customer’s specifications. From our comprehensive database, we personally contact all relevant estate/letting agents in the chosen area. Our search also covers further potential properties from the unadvertised ‘private market’ through our extensive network of contacts.

From all the available properties our relocation consultant short-lists the most suitable options and discusses with the customer the best choice of properties for a viewing. We make all the arrangements for the viewing, selection of a property, assist with the negotiations and provide a standard lease agreement. IBS can also assist with the pre-move preparations (such as connections for telephone, gas, water, electricity, satellite, etc.) and document th​e hand-over on a formal hand-over protocol.​

Settling in

The first three months of any assignment will throw up many challenges. IBS can provide support at whatever level our corporate clients require. Our consultants are on hand via ‘phone, email and in person to assist with anything from language lessons, internet setup, satellite installation, bank account opening, domestic staff or even just to answer a question as soon as it arises.

Settling In


In order to legally work and stay in the Czech Republic a foreigner might be required to obtain certain permits, the type of permits varies depending on the nationality and actual situation. For immigration compliance the main difference is between EU and non-EU nationals (including EEC nationals – Norway, Iceland and Lichtenstein – and Swiss nationals).

Although the Czech immigration process has a reputation for being quite challenging​, experience however learns that if the application process is started on time and with the correct information it can be concluded without complications. IBS has successfully obtained permits for customers originating from over 40 different countries and thanks to our extensive experience several embassies in Prague are referring expatriates to IBS for specialized support.

We will guide you through the application process step by step, providing you with detailed information on which documents are required including examples of the necessary documents. Where possible IBS will apply for the documents on your behalf and we will arrange for the required notarized copies and sworn translations. Our relocation consultants will accompany you during the required visits of the Czech authorities in Prague, reducing waiting times and stress.

Living in Prague

The mother of cities

Prague is one of the best-preserved cities in Europe. In the centre of Prague you envision yourself in a fairy-tale; Gothic churches, lovely bridges and charming alleyways surround you.

The historical centre of Prague is so charming and offers so many possibilities for entertainment that many expatriates prefer to live in the centre. Especially for expatriates without children and who will stay in Prague for a relative short period (about one year) living in the old town can be a special experience. The abundance of shops, restaurants, bars, galleries, theatres, cinemas, etc. cause the centre to be very lively throughout the year. The offer of accommodation mainly focuses on furnished and unfurnished apartments. The rents are noticeably higher as in other parts of Prague and finding a parking space can be quite a challenge.

Families with children often prefer to live close to one of the international schools. The international schools are mainly concentrated in Prague 4, 5 and 6 and finding accommodation within 15 minutes travelling distance is no problem. Prague is still a relatively ‘small’ city and as a result the access to most districts is quite good. The public transportation system is excellent and we recommend selecting a district for living, which offers the right atmosphere, and not focus too much on accessibility. Throughout the city, including the suburbs, good quality housing is available.
