Date of entry into force:

The Law of Ukraine "On the Legal Status of Foreigners and Stateless Persons" determines the legal status of foreigners and stateless persons that stay in Ukraine, and establishes the procedure for their entry to Ukraine and exit from Ukraine.

According to the Amendments to Article 1 of the Law of Ukraine "On the Legal Status of Foreigners and Stateless Persons", the permit to involve (formerly, "to use") labor of foreigners and stateless persons is a document that entitles the employer to temporarily use the labor of a foreigner or a stateless person according to the procedure established by the legislation of Ukraine.

According to the Law, foreigners and stateless persons who arrived to Ukraine as sportsmen with a professional status and received a temporary residence permit, are considered to be lawfully present on the territory of Ukraine for the duration of their relevant activity (amended Article 4, part 10 of the Law of Ukraine "On the Legal Status of Foreigners and Stateless Persons").

The Law presents a new version of Article 5, part 4 of the Law of Ukraine "On the Legal Status of Foreigners and Stateless Persons", establishing the following:
  • a temporary residence permit in a case provided for by Article 4, part 4 of the Law of Ukraine "On the Legal Status of Foreigners and Stateless Persons" shall be issued on the basis of the application of a foreigner or stateless person, a valid medical insurance policy, a permit to involve labor of foreigners or stateless persons (except for foreigners and stateless persons that have the right to be employed without such permit, according to the legislation of Ukraine), and the employer's obligation to inform central executive authorities that provide for implementation of state policy in the spheres of migration, public employment, and labor migration, about the early termination or cessation of a labor agreement (contract) with such foreigner or stateless person;
  • for foreigners or stateless persons who, according to the legislation of Ukraine, are employed without a permit to involve labor of foreigners or stateless persons, a labor agreement (contract) is submitted instead of such permit, and for persons with a foreign Ukrainian status, a labor agreement (contract) and a certificate of a foreign Ukrainian status.

The Law also amends Article 5, part 10 of the Law of Ukraine "On the Legal Status of Foreigners and Stateless Persons", according to which, the basis for issuing a temporary residence permit in cases provided for by Article 4, part 10 of the Law of Ukraine "On the Legal Status of Foreigners and Stateless Persons" is the application of a foreigner or stateless person, a valid medical insurance policy, and a petition of the appropriate state authority responsible for implementation of sports programs in which the foreigner or stateless person is participating in Ukraine.
