Reviews of our Clients

Recently, Ukraine and Poland have shown an extension and mutually advantageous development of their relations. The neighboring country has welcomed many Ukrainians who were forced to leave their homeland due to the war, and it has implemented several social programs.

That is precisely why Ukraine has introduced a "mirror" law, which grants privileged rights to Polish citizens during the period of war. So, what can Polish individuals, planning to have a long stay or conduct business in Ukraine, expect from the introduction of these new changes in Ukrainian legislation?

What new opportunities have been made available to Polish citizens in Ukraine?

One of the crucial steps towards enhancing the status of Polish citizens was the enactment of the "Law on Establishing Additional Legal and Social Guarantees for Polish Citizens." This legislative advancement provides fresh opportunities and protections for Polish nationals residing in Ukrainian territory.

An important aspect of this law is the streamlined entry and legal stay procedures in Ukraine for Polish citizens and their family members (spouses and children). Importantly, these rights are extended to family members regardless of their citizenship, allowing them to legally stay in Ukraine for up to 18 months.

Moreover, if you are a citizen of the Republic of Poland, you now have the following privileges:

  • The ability to work without requiring special permits.
  • The option to register as a taxpayer and obtain an identification code.

The underage family members can also obtain an identification code. This is done through a relevant application submitted by parents or legal representatives/guardians on behalf of the minors.

These changes in legislation enable Polish citizens to register as Individual Entrepreneurs in Ukraine without the need for work permits, residency permits, or registration. These privileges provide more opportunities for Polish citizens and, notably, encourage the establishment and growth of their businesses in the Ukrainian job market without unnecessary restrictions.
