What will change?

According to the new rules, Ukrainians who entered Poland after February 24, 2022 must obtain a PESEL number. Also, as a residence permit, you can use an electronic document available in the application.

According to the amendment, a certificate of temporary protection will give its holder the right to cross the Polish border without having to obtain a visa multiple times.

The second change concerns the procedure for the residence of refugees in Poland. It is reported that from February 1, 2023, Ukrainians who stay in Poland for more than 120 days will be required to pay 50% of the cost of their stay. It is noted that this amount will not exceed PLN 40 per person per day.

And already from May 1, 2023, refugees staying in Poland for 180 days or more will pay 75% of the costs, but not more than PLN 60 per person per day.

At the same time, vulnerable categories – the disabled, children, pensioners, pregnant women, people with children under one year old, guardians of at least three children, as well as people in a difficult financial situation will continue to live free of charge.
