The extension of the work permit takes one month from the date of submission of the full package of documents and registration of the application. The procedure must be initiated in advance. According to the legislation, documents can be registered 60 calendar days before the expiration of the work permit. The deadline for submitting an application is 30 calendar days before the expiration of the permit. If the permit is extended early, the primary validity period will not be shortened. Depending on the category of the position of a foreign employee, the work permit may be extended several times.
The renewal of a work permit is a simpler process compared to the initial process. There is no need to confirm the qualifications of a foreign specialist and provide diplomas of education and proof of employment. Also, there are a number of other conditions that must be met.
