According to Decree No. 7, starting from February 26, the rules for hiring foreigners are simplified in Belarus. This applies to laureates of national or international competitions and those who have awards in the sphere of their professional activities. Now the employers at the conclusion of contracts do not need to receive a permission for such specialists to be hired, as well as permission to attract foreign labor. Over the past year, almost 16 thousand people came to work in Belarus from abroad.
