Czech government approved on October 30, 2019, the draft regulation on an extraordinary work visa for citizens of Ukraine.

Czech Ministry of Agriculture responds to the necessity to speed up the provision of extraordinary work visas for citizens of Ukraine working in agriculture, food industry or forestry in order to address the critical situation in forestry associated with the fight against bark beetle calamity. The regulation also reflects the long-term unsatisfactory labour supply in agriculture and the food sector. There are currently 57,000 jobs available in the aforementioned sectors in the Czech Republic. The number of visa applications submitted per calendar year should be up to 1500.
