How Can A Foreigner Obtain A Work Permit For Several Workers At Once?

You are an employer who intends to hire foreign employees. You may have many reasons for this. 

In our practice we got various requests from companies opening their subsidiaries in Ukraine and wishing to transfer reliable administrators-managers to such “branches”. This solution usually facilitates the company governance and ensures its uninterrupted operation.

Or the specifics of your company requires the specialists, which is easier and more reliable to invite from abroad, for example, it can be a chef for your restaurant, or the director of the IT-company. Today, the issue of relocation and moving to another country for a good job surprises no one.

In any case, as an employer, you will have to undertake the process of obtaining a Work Permit for a citizen of India, China, Poland and any other country where you find such a suitable employee.

And here you may face a number of problems:

  • How not to delay the process? 

  • How to organize the procedure if, for example, there are several workers?

  • How to draw up an employment agreement correctly? As it is carefully checked by the Employment Office.

  • What are the restrictions for the minimum wage, as well as for the working conditions of foreigners? Here it is important to remember that there are different categories of foreign workers, with different restrictions on working conditions, requirements for the minimum wage, which must also be taken into account when applying for a work permit.

Without experience, skills, established communication with the Employment Office, understanding of the limitations of the Ukrainian laws when hiring foreigners, this procedure will simply become too stiff to handle and will bring more problems than benefits.

Please note! Many employers, when considering the necessity for their employee to move to Ukraine and possible options of staying there, immediately negotiate with the employee the possibility of obtaining a residence permit in Ukraine. It’s worth remembering that a work permit alone does not authorize a foreigner to officially stay in Ukraine. A work permit is only the basis for obtaining a D-type visa to Ukraine (it entitles you to stay for 90 days in the country), or to obtain a residence permit by employment. However, only a residence permit will enable the employee to comfortably stay in the territory of Ukraine for the entire work permit validity period. In this case, we offer a package of services work permit+residence permit for each employee. You can clarify the terms and conditions of this package with our employee.
