Poland and Czech Republic are open for employment – expert
Due to the pandemic, it is almost impossible for Ukrainians to officially find employment in the United States and very difficult in Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands.
In Europe, due to the rise in internal unemployment caused by the coronavirus pandemic, border controls have been tightened. This led to an increase in the number of deportations of Ukrainian citizens working in the EU illegally, writes UNIAN.
In 2020, the pandemic caused significant damage to the global economy, destroying the equivalent of 225 million full-time jobs, Ruslana Brovchuk, head of recruiting company Persha Visa, said, citing data from the International Labor Organization.
According to her, young people have suffered.
“The loss of employment among young people (15-24 years old) was 8.7% compared to 3.7% among adults,” Brovchuk said.
She also stressed that now it is very difficult for Ukrainians to officially find a job in the United States, since there are programs in this country aimed at reducing the inflow of low-skilled people from abroad.
For Ukrainians, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands are more attractive, but it is difficult to get an official job there. Only Poland and the Czech Republic are open for employment, Brovchuk noted.
The expert added that due to the pandemic, the countries have now introduced strict controls on their internal borders, so the number of deported Ukrainians who, for example, go to work in Germany with a Polish visa, has increased dramatically.

Meanwhile, the Prime Minister of Ukraine Denis Shmyhal told when the Ukrainians will earn, as in Poland.
