New rules for Ukrainians in the EU

Already in the fall, Ukrainians in the EU face new circumstances. You will need to update the paperwork for the temporary protection status, and you should be informed of financial innovations. Read here to find out which nations will change and what.

By August 31, Ukrainians who are present in Germany without a valid visa-free stay and whose visa-free period has expired must leave the country or apply for legal status.

Ukrainians were permitted to remain in the nation without registering up until August 31.

You now have three days to register without a visa.

The temporary protection status granted to Ukrainians in France who are there due to the war must be renewed after six months. Financial payments will stop if that happens.

Many Ukrainian immigrants' APS residency permits expire in September, six months after they arrive in the nation. You must keep up your APS in the prefecture where you reside in order to keep receiving ADA payments.

The Prague City Hall has stopped charging homes who house Ukrainian refugees since September. Due to the high cost of living in the city, the city added an additional 140 kroner per person for housing use to the daily state subsidy of 250 kroner.

Since September, Ukrainian refugees in Ireland are eligible to enroll in classes for free and earn scholarships. Anyone can access certification courses thanks to the Post-Leaving Certificate Courses program. Training is provided in a number of disciplines:

  • agriculture;
  • forestry;
  • veterinary training;
  • fishing;

Ukrainians living in Ireland who have been granted refugee status are eligible to attend classes for free during the 2022–2023 academic year. Since there are already 45,000 Ukrainian refugees in the nation, the government made the decision to assist them in adjusting by obtaining new education for job.

Therefore, starting in September, such courses will be free for Ukrainians. A scholarship worth 6,115 euros will also be given to these students; it will be distributed over the course of a year in monthly installments.

In March, when the first Ukrainian refugees arrived in Poland, it was impossible to exchange currency in hryvnias for zlotys at a fair exchange rate. The National Banks of Poland and Ukraine then decided to exchange currency at a fixed rate of little under 7 hryvnias for 1 zloty. Up to 10,000 hryvnias could be exchanged in this manner by a single Ukrainian.

The National Bank of Ukraine had to purchase up to 10 billion hryvnias in Ukrainian currency as a result of PKO Bank Polski's opening of such an exchange at 100 of its branches.

As of now, 681 million hryvnias have been exchanged by Ukrainians; about 80,000 persons took advantage of this chance. The program will end on September 10 as a result of declining interest at the same time.
