Do I need a work permit for employing people from abroad?

Employers of migrant workers need a work permit for Croatian and non-EU/EEA/Swiss nationals. The application procedure for a work permit and a residence permit for migrant workers is combined in an application for a single permit for residence and work. Both, the employer and the foreigner, can apply for this single permit at the IND. Croats, students and seasonal workers cannot apply for a single permit for residence and work. They can apply separately for a work permit.
