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.

Work Force Demand Remains the same. The Application should be submitted not later that 15 calendar days prior the Work Permit submission

The set of documents remains the same

WP obtaining The set of document remains the same
WP prolongation The set of document remains the same

WP prolongation- must be submitted not later than 20 calendar days before the expiration date of the WP to the Labor Office

WP cancellation The Procedure and applications remain the same.
