Sanctions on Russia and Belarus – what do businesses need to assess?

The WALLESS team shares advice for businesses on how to manage the risks associated with sanctions.

Following the Russian Federation’s large-scale military aggression against the sovereign state of Ukraine, the European Union and the international community as a whole have imposed an unprecedented scale and scope of restrictive measures against the Russian Federation and against individuals/companies. Sanctions are also being extended to the Republic of Belarus, which is complicit in the aggression. This will also affect businesses in Lithuania and Latvia.

As of yesterday (1st of March), a simplified employment procedure for Ukrainian citizens arriving to Lithuania has been introduced. Those who use a visa-free regime, have a national visa, residence permit, or have already applied for asylum in Lithuania will be able to start working immediately. In practice, this means that employers (Lithuanian companies) will no longer need to submit an application to the Employment Service Institution for a work permit or decision that a person meets the needs of the Lithuanian labor market.

Also, State Authorities confirmed previous unofficial information that no fee will be due for visa and residence permit applications submitted by Ukrainians staying in Lithuania for humanitarian reasons.
