Poland’s Consulates in Ukraine are going to resume the issuing of work visas. These consulates have been shut until now as part of efforts to combat COVID-19.
The Polish consulate has said that applicants with documents for the following purposes will be considered first:
- horticultural and agricultural work
- international transportation
These categories for work visa application will be eligible for registration for visa document submission in the e-konsulat electronic system.
Ukraine started to receive Polish work visas postally on April 29, 2020. This was following the agreement reached by Poland’s consular services in Ukraine.
From March 16, 2020 Poland’s consulates in Ukraine suspended their work for the time being due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Polish consulates general in Lviv, Lutsk, Odesa, Vinnytsia, and Kharkiv are active in Ukraine as is Poland’s Embassy in Kyiv.
Amid Coronavirus pandemic, Poland decided to extend visas for foreign citizens with national visas, work permits, or a temporary residence permit. This will be for a period of 30 days post the end of the COviD-19 emergency.
Foreign citizens can file applications to legalize their stay. The work permit’s validity for seasonal workers can also be applied to be extended.
The Office for Foreigners has also said that foreign citizens in Poland could extend their legal stay by getting a new card permit or with a visa stamped on their passports.
