Obtainment of a work permit is regulated by the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine number 322 dated the 8th of April 2009.

Work permit is issued for an employment by the specific legal entity of the specific foreigner for the specific position.

Term of such permit is set for not longer than a year. This term may be prolonged.

A legal entity who is eager to employ a non-resident must be registered at the Department of Citizenship, Immigration and Registration of Individuals.

The permit cannot be prolonged for the period that exceeds one year.


Upon reaching the final agreements on cost and term of service provision a Client signs a contract with the firm and pays for the services. At the same time he provides the documents mentioned in section “REQUIRED DOCUMENTS” which will be reflected in an Act of Acceptance.

After this we start the preparation and drafting of all the required documents. Prepared documents are agreed with the Client and are signed by him (including authorization documents).

The next step is completion of all the necessary actions for issuance or reissuance of a work permit in Kiev (Ukraine). This stage requires payment of state duty by a Client for the review of his application.

As the result (after the documents have been examined by the Commission) we give the Client his work permit for a foreigner.
