To work in Ukraine (either based on a direct employment agreement or being assigned based on an agreement between a Ukrainian and a foreign legal entity), a foreign national must have a work permit. No comprehensive quota system exists in Ukraine with respect to the issuance of residence and work permits to most foreign nationals. Obtaining a work permit is a rather burdensome and time-consuming procedure.

The State Employment Center of the Ministry of Social Policy issues work permits, which are usually for a period of up to one year and may be extended.

The employer of a foreign national must apply for a work permit with the local employment centre.

Social Security in Ukraine

Locally paid salaries are subject to the unified social tax, borne by the employee at a rate ranging from 2% to 3.6%, depending on the type of income (for example, salary or sick leave allowance) and borne by the employer at a rate ranging from 36.76% to 49.7%, depending on the workplace's safety rating. The base for the contributions is capped by the maximum monthly base, which is UAH 19,499 as of 27 June 2013.

The unified social tax is not payable on salaries paid from outside Ukraine by nonresident employers to their employees, unless the respective costs are then recharged to the Ukrainian entity that benefits from the individuals' work.
