The Hungarian government has extended the residence permit for Ukrainian refugees. Find out more about the extension of the asylum for how long
Hungary has extended the validity of residence permits for refugees from Ukraine. The asylum will be valid for another year - until March 4, 2024. Read the details of the decision of the Hungarian authorities below.
The country took this step following a similar decision by the EU, which also extended temporary protection for Ukrainians until March 2024.
How can Ukrainians extend their status?
Ukrainian refugees do not need to take any action. The validity of the plastic card was extended by law. Thus, the status is extended automatically.
The UN Refugee Agency in Hungary explained that if anyone asks about the validity of your residence permit, for example, your employer or any service providers (healthcare, education), please inform them about the extension and show them the law that guarantees that the plastic card is valid until March 4, 2024.
Attention! In the above case, reference should be made to Government Regulation 58/2023 of February 28, 2023, and section 5(3) of Government Regulation 86/2022 of March 7, 2022.
What financial assistance is still available to refugees?
If refugees from Ukraine have temporary protection status in Hungary (they have a plastic card), they can count on financial assistance. The amount of assistance is 22,800 forints per month (2,350 UAH) for an adult and 13,700 forints (1,412 UAH) per month for a child.
Where to apply for support?
You can apply for this assistance at the employment service of the district state administration by presenting your plastic card.
We remind you! Most countries continue to help refugees from Ukraine and provide asylum and social guarantees. Read more about which countries have extended the protection status, for how long and how Ukrainians can extend it here.
