Abstract: Labour migrants always leave their home country with some expectation and goals which they want to fill in the destination country. Their goals are strongly influenced by economic and political situation in both countries. This paper is based on an ethnographic research and it focuses on motives and strategies of current labour migrants from the Czech Republic. The most attractive country for them is the United Kingdom. They opened their labour markets for newcomers in May 2004 when the Czech Republic entered the EU. The research of current migrants shows that they look abroad for self-realization more than for purely economic reasons. Findings from the research indicate that the language plays the biggest importance in motivation for migration. However the economic motives still persist. The other influential factor for initiating migration is a favourable political situation. Among the contemporary labour migrants there can be detected two main strategies of entrance – the utilizing of social networks and using services of specialized labour agencies.
