Frequently asked Questions:

Question: Is the work permit the basis for obtaining a residence permit in Ukraine?
Answer: The work permit is one of the few and the simplest reasons for obtaining a temporary residence permit in Ukraine. Details on obtaining a temporary residence permit in Ukraine >>>>>>

Question: What is the easiest way to get a work permit?
Answer: The easiest way to obtain a work permit is to obtain a work permit for a expat foreigner who is also the founder (shareholder) of the enterprise. In addition, a simplified and preferential order exists for IT professionals.

Question:
If I get a work permit in Ukraine, can I work in any organization?
Answer: No. A work permit is issued for a specific position in a particular Ukranian company. In another position and / or at another company you will not be able to work until you receive a new work permit in Ukraine.
For example: if we get permission for you to work for Coca Cola as a programmer, you can not work with McDonald's as a programmer with this permission. To work in the company McDonald's you need to get a new work permit. However, it is possible to obtain an unlimited number of work permits: for different positions and in different LLC enterprises.

Question: Can a foreigner open (register) a new company LLC, being simultaneously a founder (participant) and a director, and after registration get a work permit?
Answer: No. You should open (register) a new company (LLC) and, before registration, appoint a director that is a citizen of Ukraine. After registration, you will be able to apply for a permit to work for the founder of the position of director or his deputy. After obtaining a work permit, it is necessary to amend the state register on the appointment of a new director >>>>>>.

 
Question: If I get a work permit, can I stay on the territory of Ukraine for more than 90 days?
Answer: No. In order for you to have the right to stay on the territory of Ukraine for a period of more than 90 days, you should apply for a temporary residence permit. Our company helps with this service.

Question: I got a work permit, now the company in which I work should pay me a minimum of UAH 6000 (10 minimum wages). If I will be paid officially less, it is something that threatens me?
Answer: If the Employment Center receives information that the salary you actually receive is less than the salary that was specified when obtaining a work permit, the work permit will be revoked.
Judging by the statistics, posted on the website of the employment centre in Kiev, the cancellation of work permits for this reason is quite frequent. Do not forget that the cancellation of the work permit leads to automatic cancellation of the temporary residence permit, which was issued on the basis of a work permit.

Здравствуйте,

Как получить временный вид на жительство в Украине как гражданин Польши? Я хотел бы попасть в Украину, но не могу, потому что для иностранцев закрыты границы. Что я могу сделать, чтобы попасть в Украину? Будет ли такое же разрешение на работу разрешать мне въезд в Украину?
адвокат Ігор Балабан 07.05.2020 09:55
Вид на жительтство невозможно получить удаленно, Его можно получить, только в Украине. Разрешение на работу пока не дает право на вьезд.
Пока могут въезжать только с видом на жительство, супруги и дети граждан Украины.
