A temporary residence permit is a document that certifies the identity of a foreign citizen or stateless person and confirms his/her right to the temporary residence on the territory of Ukraine.
Ways to obtain a work permit
- Find a company that is interested in employing a foreigner and help to get an official work permit.
- Register your own company, become a director (or get another position) and apply for a Permit in your own company.
- Become a company founder. From 2017, the founders of the company can also receive a temporary residence permit even without employment.
Each of the options has its pros and cons.
Pluses for your own company
Pluses for employment in a "not own" company
Independence and the ability to build your own business
Guaranteed salary from the employer
Own responsibility for annual renewal
Employer's Responsibility for Annual Permit Renewal
Summing up, we can emphasize that each plus turns into a minus if you make the opposite decision. Own company is only a plus when a foreign founder is a responsible person and has enough funds for the development of the company. At the same time, not everyone likes dependence on an employer who can manipulate wages and then refuse to renew the work permit annually.
The validity of the Temporary Residence Permit depends on the term of the work permit and can be from 6 months to 3 years. Also, the legislation of Ukraine provides for the submission of documents for the continuation of the Temporary residence permit but no later than 10 calendar days before its expiration date.
