Lawyers of J&L Consulting are constantly monitoring updates on the application process and can provide qualified assistance throughout the multi-level work permit obtaining process.
However, all the necessary actions concerning execution of documents for receiving the work permit are to be carried out by the employer. It means that the foreign citizen isn’t obliged to be present personally while submitting the documents but has to provide a lawyer acting on behalf of the employer with copy of passport and photo. J&L Consulting specialists prepare all other necessary documents. For example, an important element for obtaining a positive decision from the Employment Center on the issuance of a work permit is a properly drafted employment agreement (contract).
