For the attention of Diia.City residents! The government has simplified the hiring of foreigners by Diia.City residents

The Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine No. 68 dated 24.01.2023 stipulates that during martial law, Diia.City residents may receive works (services) performed (provided) by gig-specialists from among foreigners and stateless persons under gig-contracts without obtaining a work permit for foreigners and stateless persons in Ukraine.

Thus, as can be seen from the above, a work permit is not required if a company enters into a gig contract with such a specialist. The special conditions will remain in effect until the end of martial law in Ukraine.

As a reminder, in accordance with the Law of Ukraine “On Stimulating the Development of the Digital Economy in Ukraine”, a gig contract is a civil law contract under which a gig specialist undertakes to perform work and/or provide services in accordance with the tasks of a Diia.City resident as a customer, and a Diia.City resident undertakes to pay for the work performed and/or services provided and to provide the gig specialist with appropriate conditions for the performance of work and/or provision of services.

If you need advice or assistance in obtaining the status of a Diia.City resident or developing a gig contract, Patriot.Legal specialists will be happy to provide you with all the necessary legal assistance.
