Specialists to appreciate hospitality
Belarus creates conditions to attract highly qualified foreign workers
The procedure for issuing and extending the duration of special permits allowing highly qualified foreign specialists to work in Belarus has been amended. The measure was laid down by the Council of Ministers’ recent executive order, with a document adopted in line with the Law ‘On Introduction of Changes and Additions and in the Law of the Republic of Belarus ‘On External Labour Migration’. The term ‘highly qualified worker’ has been clearly defined, with specified requirements listed.
In line with the executive order, special job permits will be granted to foreign highly qualified workers for a period of two years, and may be extended for a further two years. Permits will be granted to other foreign workers for a period of one year. The Government’s press service explains that these measures should improve state policy in the sphere of external labour migration.
