Germany continues to accept Ukrainians under the temporary protection program, providing them with housing in the federal state where they register for the first time. This is reported by uahelp.wiki


We will tell you in which camps there are vacancies and what are the conditions for accepting Ukrainian refugees in Germany in January. 


What are the conditions for refugees from Ukraine arriving in Germany?


Germany provides accommodation and food for refugees from Ukraine. Accommodation can include an apartment, a hotel, a hostel, a former nursing home, a barracks or an adapted empty hypermarket, sometimes with outdoor facilities. 


It is also possible to place refugees next to representatives of other countries.


"The housing situation in Germany is very difficult. If you have nowhere to live, you will never be left on the street, but you should expect to live in hangars, dormitories, containers or gyms for many months, not necessarily near a large city," warn the volunteers of the uahelp.wiki project.


Most refugees first go to primary reception centers or camps, from where they are distributed to federal states. However, if quotas are exceeded, refugees can be redirected to other territories.


"Once you have registered, you have only one chance, and you should reside in the federal state where you registered or where you were sent," uahelp.wiki explains.


Moving to another federal state requires a special permit, which can only be obtained for justified reasons, such as work, study, family ties, or minor children.

It is noted that all reception centers are open 24/7. Contact details should be checked before departure.

Remember that one of the prerequisites for staying abroad is to have health insurance. Thanks to insurance, you will be able to receive high-quality medical care without having to pay for it.


You can buy insurance online in a few clicks here. A ready-made insurance policy will be sent to your email in a few minutes.

If you are planning to leave Ukraine by car, you should take care of obtaining a Green Card policy in advance, because without it, your car will not be allowed to cross the border. You can buy car insurance quickly and profitably on the Visit Ukraine website.

Moving to another country is a serious process that requires preparation and knowledge of all the nuances. Legal support will be helpful for this. Use the services of a personal lawyer here.

We remind you! Refugees in Germany expect a number of significant changes this year. Learn more about the key initiatives that will improve the stay of Ukrainians in Germany.
