Today, the legal employment of foreigners in Ukraine has become no less relevant than the employment of its citizens. To minimize the competition of foreigners with the local population in employment, a mechanism for the legal settlement of these problems has been developed.
In fact, the need to have an employment permit for foreigners implies that citizens of Ukraine enjoy preferential rights to receive it.
There is a clear list of categories of foreigners who do not require a special permit for employment: permanent residents in Ukraine, employees of foreign media and representations, artists, athletes, participants in the implementation of international projects, invited for teaching in universities.
In September 2017, Ukraine adopted a reform that changed the conditions and rules for the employment of foreigners. It consists in the abolition of any requirements for the qualification of foreigner and the establishment of a minimum wage, which he/she must receive in the amount of 10 minimum wages established by law (3200 UAH in 2017). Also, a fee will be charged for issuing an employment permit and renewing it.
