TO FOSTER AN UNACCOMPANIED MINOR FLEEING FROM WAR

I WANT TO EMPLOY A UKRAINIAN

Residents of Ukraine who have left the war zone are in all cases exempted from the obligation to obtain a work permit in Lithuania and/or a decision on compliance with the needs of the labor market, so employers will not have to apply to the Employment service for work permits and/or decisions on compliance.

Employers who have concluded an employment contract with a foreigner must submit a report in the prescribed form to FWL via the EDAS SODRA information system. The specified notice of an employment of an alien must be submitted not later than one business day before the day of employment of the alien
