Czech diplomatic missions in Ukraine resumed work of consular departments, aimed at issuing work visas, as Radio Prague International reported.
The Consulate General in Lviv began to accept visa applications and documents on May 22.
The Embassy of the Czech Republic in Kyiv will open the consular department on Monday, May 25.
"After repeated negotiations with the Ukrainian authorities, we managed to reach an agreement and partially resume the visa process. The Czech economy needs Ukrainian workers. We are trying to simplify the situation for Czech health care and agriculture, which lack seasonal workers from abroad," Czech Foreign Minister Tomáš Petříček, notes.
Directly on the territory of the Czech Republic, Ukrainian highly qualified personnel in the field of health care, in the field of social services, as well as researchers, students, and their relatives who are currently in the Czech Republic will be able to apply for an extension of residence permits.
As we reported, the airline Wizz Air has extended the delay in flights to the Ukrainian direction until June 15 due to the decision of the government to extend the period of travel restrictions.
