The work permit application process has been simplified to facilitate the employment of skilled foreign workers. Decree No. 858, released Nov. 20 and retroactive to Sept. 27, approves new application forms and procedures for hiring foreign workers on short- or long-term contracts, skilled foreign employees, founders and beneficiaries of Ukrainian businesses, skilled IT professionals, and certain other employees.
The new regulations follow passage in June of Law No. 2058-VIII, also effective Sept. 27, which amended and simplified procedures for hiring skilled foreign workers under Law No. 5067-VI. The amendments allow work permits to be issued for up to three years and extended indefinitely. New permits must be issued within seven business days of application, extensions within three business days. Employers must sign employment contracts with skilled foreign workers within 90 calendar days of receiving the work permit and submit copies of the employment contracts to the authorities within 10 business days of signing.
