Changes for Ukrainians in the Netherlands

In order to prove their temporary protection status, Ukrainians living in the Netherlands must have a particular sticker-mark in their passport or O-document as of November 1.

The sticker will serve as confirmation of the official status of temporary protection and will allow you to legally get a job.

Employment of Ukrainians in the Netherlands

Due to Dutch law's restriction on hiring foreign nationals without the employer's consent, a unique, streamlined process has been created for Ukrainian refugees. Employers who hired Ukrainians in particular were exempt from obtaining a permit. This relaxation will be in effect until October 31. The government gave Ukrainians the chance to issue the essential documents during this time.
