Starting from September 1, 2023, the cities of Kladno and Kutná Hora in the Czech Republic will provide public humanitarian housing located in the Central Bohemian region exclusively with the support of regional assistance centers (KACPU). This is reported by the official web portal for foreigners who are or wish to be in the territory of the Czech Republic.


Obtaining housing for Ukrainians in the Czech Republic: what is changing


As you know, state humanitarian housing is the first form of assistance for asylum seekers who have been seeking refuge since the beginning of the full-scale invasion of Ukraine and have not yet found housing in the Czech Republic. 


More information about this service can be found on the page entitled "State humanitarian housing from July 1, 2023".

How to apply for housing in the Czech Republic?


If you intend to apply for state humanitarian housing in the Central Bohemian Region, you should contact the KACPU in Kladno or Kutná Hora. 

The possibility of obtaining housing will depend on the availability of places in any municipality in the region.


If you already have a place of residence in the Czech Republic and you only need to apply for temporary protection, you should also contact the KACPU responsible for your place of residence. Find a list of regional centers of assistance to Ukraine here.


As a reminder, the Czech government has adopted an amendment to the "lex Ukraine" law, which allows Ukrainian refugees to extend their temporary protection status. Read more about when the asylum expires here.


How do Ukrainian refugees live in the Czech Republic?


According to research conducted by PAQ Research together with the Institute of Sociology of the Czech Academy of Sciences, 68% of refugees survive below the poverty line, and 45% of families can survive for less than a month using their own savings.


At the same time, 67% of economically active refugees were able to find a job, but more than 40% of them do work that is far below their qualifications. Also, a third of respondents reported that they work without social and health insurance, as well as vacations.

However, asylum can be extended for a maximum of three years. Find out what Ukrainians can expect after the end of their protection in the country here.
