New rule on the exemption from the requirement for a work permit for guest teachers

Starting 10 June 2018 guest teachers who will be lecturing at an educational institution under the Ministry of Higher Education and Science or the Ministry of Culture no longer need to apply for a work permit.

The exemption from the requirement for a work permit is limited to 5 days within a period of 180 days. The 5 days can be distributed over the 180 days or consist of a single course of 5 consecutive days.

If a course lasts longer than 5 days, the guest teachers must, as has been the case until 10 June 2018, apply for a residence and work permit before he or she starts to work.
