It can be also an extract from commercial or judicial register of a foreign country. For example, it is an excerpt from the state judicial register, more known as a KRS, in Poland;
  • If your foreign partner is not a final employer but an agent as you, then he has to provide you with a notary copy of a license/certificate or another permission for the foreign employment agency, which confirms a right to provide these services in a foreign country. If there are no any permission documents according to the foreign laws then your agent hasn’t provide you with these documents. Except it, if a foreign partner is an agent, he has to provide you with an agreement between you and a final employer and also a notary copy of employer’s registration documents;
  • A project of a labor agreement which is verified by a final employer (if a final employer is you foreign partner then he verifies this document);

Employment agency license requirements in Ukraine

This activity can be conducted only at one address. Moreover, the licensing body has clear requirements on a signboard and on a customer’s corner in premises. Even if office stops its work temporary, a licensee has to inform about it the licensing body.
If there are other changes in the information which was reported to the Ministry of Social Policy of Ukraine, licensee must report about it during 30 days.

At the same time, if there are new foreign partners then a licensee is not obliged to report about it to the licensing body. Only if the state body demands then a licensee must submit an agreement with a foreign partner.

If there are new locations where activity is conducted then the licensing body must be reported about it. Previously a copy of the license had been issued for every office.

Also the foreign employment agency license had information about countries, where citizens can be employed, previously. But at the moment order on issuance the license doesn’t have this information. This information can be found in the Microsoft Excel File on the web-site of the Ministry.

It is enough to have just one agreement with a foreign partner for getting the foreign employment agency license in Ukraine. A licensee works with new partners according to already signed agreements and he is obliged to submit them only if the licensing body demands them.

Providing services for people who look for a job must be conducted according to the written agreement. At the same time a licensee is obliged to provide them with written information about terms of a future job, general labor terms and accommodation in a foreign country.
