Ukraine: Immigration Bulletin – Immigration changes in beginning of 2015
Major Immigration Changes
Date submitted: 17.02.2015
The processing time has shortened . Workers in IT sector, top 100 world schools graduates, those in process of obtaining the status of refugee or persons requiring additional support will benefit. Work permit application process will now take 7 days instead of 15 days as earlier.
The application form has been changed to a newer one. For prolongation, documents should be submitted not later than 20 calendar days before the expiration date of the WP. All documents are now returned in case of work permit rejection. Previously these documents were not returned by the Ministry of Labor.
The Ministry of labour will now also inform of its decisions via email and post. The state fee payment deadline has also now been shortened to 10 working days. The employment contract should be submitted within 7 working days. Earlier, the work permit process would take 15 calendar days while the work permit prolongation should have been submitted not later than 30 calendar days prior to the expiration date of the WP
The Commission with the external personnel (from the State Migration Service, the Police, etc) is now canceled. The procedure of the decision making will be regulated by the Labour Office internally (either one person decision or the Internal Commission- it will not effect the company).
We see this a positive step from Ministry of Labor, and believe this will speed up the process of work permit obtaining and prolongation.
