Ukrainians who moved to Poland after February 24, 2022, and lost their educational document can obtain a European Qualification Passport (EQPR). We will tell you what this document is and how it will help refugees.


Last year, Poland became a member of the Council of Europe's European Qualification Passport for Refugees project. Thus, Ukrainians can now obtain this document in Poland.


What is the European Qualification Passport (EQPR)?


The EQPR is a tool that facilitates the recognition of refugees' qualifications even in the absence of complete documentation. It also records the refugee's highest level of education, experience and language skills.


In addition, this document can be used by refugees who wish to pursue further education or seek employment.


The document was created in order to:


- to provide an opportunity to continue the training started;

- assess the level of qualifications and work experience

- help with job search;

- replace the lost documents confirming the following: 1. higher education; 2. vocational education; 3. complete secondary education; 4. training practice;

- confirmation of language skills.


The EQPR is recognized by such EU countries as Poland, Italy, France, Greece, Germany, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Romania, and Moldova.


How to obtain the European Qualifications Passport?


To apply for this document, you need to follow a few steps.


1. create an account on this website;

2. fill in the profile questionnaire for the EQPR;

3. apply for the document;


For more information on how to register for the European Qualification Passport, please refer to the special booklet on the document (available in Ukrainian).


If all the steps are completed correctly, the project organizers should contact you and explain where to get the document (it looks like this).

If you have any additional questions, you can get a consultation in Ukrainian by calling 451 058 653.


We remind you! Recently, there have been massive cases in Poland when refugees lose their UKR status and the privileges it provides by leaving the country for less than 30 days. We will tell you why this happens and how to avoid it here.
