Work permit in Ukraine for foreign bank employees

Work permit in Ukraine for foreign bank employees

During the crisis caused by the war, many banks in the banking sector are looking to optimize their workforce, and as a result, more and more of them are turning to outsourcing for non-typical and non-systemic tasks.

Our company has actually been hired as an outsourcer for one of these banks, specifically for hiring foreign employees. In the past, the bank used to handle this internally, but due to changes in legislation and the departure of the employee who was responsible for this area, they needed external help.

In Ukraine, the bank has been inviting CEOs and IT specialists for employment, but we have been facing some challenges, namely:

  • how to proceed after a rejection from the employment center;
  • the foreigners belonged to a country with a visa regime for entry;
  • limited timeframes for collecting and submitting the necessary documents.
