Work permit in Ukraine

Price: 7000 UAH for 1 year, 10000 UAH for 2 years.

On 23th of May 2017 the President of Ukraine signed the Law of Ukraine No. 2058-VIII dated 05/23/2017 "About Amending Certain Legislative Acts of Ukraine Regarding the Reduction of Barriers to Attracting Foreign Investment" (hereinafter - the Law). Entered into force on 27th of September 2017.

Now, at the level of the Law, not only the general rights of citizens, guarantees of rights and freedoms, basic duties, the general legal status of foreigners are determined, but also the procedures and mechanisms for obtaining work permits to use the labor of foreigners and for obtaining residence permits are regulated with maximum detail.

Despite the rather loud name, this Law does not significantly change the legal status of foreigners who plan to work in Ukraine, nor does it simplify the procedure for employers to obtain work permits and residence permits. One of the consequences of the Law is the requirement for the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine to abolish by-laws that define the mechanism and procedure.

Most of the provisions in the Law relate to issues of the procedure for issuing permits to use the labor of foreigners, amending such permit and extending its validity. The list of documents that necessary for obtaining, amending and extending the validity period of a permit, the size of the fee for issuing and extending the validity period of a permit, the procedure for amending a permit, the time period for considering applications from employers, the procedure for correcting errors in submitted documents, and so on is also established.
