What documents do I need to work in this country?

If you have been granted temporary protection, you are allowed to work. You don't need to apply for another work permit (Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs mceclip0.png or Czech Labour Office mceclip0.png). A useful summary can also be found here mceclip0.png - for example of the next steps you or your employer need to take once you have accepted a job offer.

Foreigners not covered by temporary protection (Lex Ukraine) cannot work without a work permit issued by the local labor office. It is possible to apply for a work permit on the basis of a vacant position announced by a Czech employer (no labor market test is performed) and on the basis of a concluded employment contract.
