After the war started by Russia, millions of Ukrainians took refuge in their border neighbor Poland. The Polish parliament, on the other hand, made an interesting decision regarding the Ukrainian refugees. According to the law, Poland will now receive housing allowance from Ukrainians. If refugees stay in the country for more than 180 days, the fee will increase.
After the Polish Council of Ministers adopted the bill, which includes amendments to the law on aid to Ukrainian refugees, prepared by the Polish Ministry of Internal Affairs and Administrative Affairs, the Polish Parliament also received approval.
HE WILL BENEFITS HALF OF THE COSTS
Parliament passed the bill proposing amendments to the law on assistance to Ukrainian refugees. There is a law in place to tighten up the system of financial assistance paid to war refugees, and to have refugees pay for part of the cost of living in mass shelters. According to this law, every Ukrainian refugee who will stay in Poland for more than 120 days will bear 50 percent of the expenses for himself, not exceeding 40 zloty (8 euros) per day.
FEES INCREASED IF THEY STAY MORE THAN 180
If the residence period exceeds 180 days, Ukrainian refugees will pay 75 percent of the expenses out of their own pocket, provided that they do not exceed 60 zloty (13 euros) per day. Disabled people, children, retirees, pregnant women, those with children under the age of 12, families with 3 children and refugees in financial difficulties will be exempted from the said accommodation fee.
Again, according to the law, if the Ukrainian refugee leaves Poland, the aid given to him will be frozen, and if he stays outside the country for more than 30 days, he will lose his right of residence and the benefits he has been receiving. The law will enter into force as of March 1, 2023, after the approval of the Senate and the President.
