AmCham advocacy success regarding the procedure for the licensing of third-country employees
- November 27, 2017
AmCham sent its position to the Ministry for National Economy in October and recommended that the employment licensing procedure of third-country employees needs to be simplified and speeded up. A simplified licensing procedure is applied when less than 5% of employees are from a third-country. AmCham sent several suggestions to the current licensing procedure, including the elevation of the aforementioned threshold to 10%. On 21th of November, the Ministry for National Economy sent its feedback to AmCham, which confirmed that a Government decree (345/2017) has been published, changing the threshold to 10%. AmCham welcomes this policy success and will continue its advocacy work in order to make lincencing procedure more favourable for companies.
