Emloyment of Ukrainians in Austria gets easier
While persons from Ukraine, who as displaced persons have a temporary right of residence in Austria, previously had to apply for an employment permit at the AMS before starting employment, this requirement will now be dropped. A legislative resolution is to be passed in the Austrian Parliament at the end of March 2023.
This means that in future displaced persons from Ukraine will be allowed to be employed in Austria without further requirements, just like other employees.
But beware, if you are a refugee from Ukraine and are still receiving basic benefits from one of the federal provinces, you should be aware that taking up employment that exceeds the additional earnings limits will count towards your basic benefits.
