They want to launch a new aid program for Ukrainian refugees in France. Special cards with money in the account are planned to be issued to new arrivals. How it will work is described below.


For example, French banking services startup Welcome.Place has signed an agreement with Finnish PayTechs Enfuce and Epassi, as well as global payment giant Visa, to launch cards for refugees arriving in France, mostly Ukrainians.


People arriving in France as refugees or immigrants will receive a "Welcome Package" with a Visa card that will be preloaded with funds to facilitate the cost of a number of goods and services during the first weeks of their stay in France.


The program will be able to remotely establish full control over spending on each card, including where and how it can be used, with full tracking and monitoring of how money is spent.


The pilot project is expected to end this year, and then a larger contract is likely to be signed to scale up the card program to serve more refugees.


It is noted that since the beginning of the full-scale war, about 120,000 Ukrainian citizens have come to France.


We will remind you! Earlier, we wrote that Ukrainian citizens can issue a residence permit in France. How to stay in this country, read the link.

Remember! An insurance policy is a guarantee of your safety and peaceful stay outside of Ukraine. In order to protect yourself from troubles abroad and to be calm for yourself and your loved ones, Visit Ukraine recommends not to delay and take out insurance online.
