• Before filing for work permits for Non-EU Nationals, a company must now prove that it has a clean criminal record by obtaining a Criminal Record Certificate from relevant authorities prior to submitting a work permit application.
  • The Certificate should state that the company has not committed any international criminal acts under the Labor Code and is otherwise compliant with all regulations.
  • Furthermore, companies will also be required to submit documentation proving financial stability and that there are no outstanding payments. Failure to meet these two conditions will result in a company’s inability to hire Non-EU nationals.
