Poland is considering extending the special law on assistance to Ukrainian refugees for six months, and as a result, the conditions of their stay may change. This was reported by ukrayina.pl.


Here's what may change for Ukrainians in Poland.


Support for Ukrainian refugees may be reduced in Poland: details


Temporary protection for persons who fled the war in Ukraine is valid in Poland until March 4, 2024. The government plans to extend the relevant special law for six months, Rzeczpospolita reports. 


It is emphasized that during this period, the ministers intend to develop new rules for providing assistance to refugees.


"We are giving ourselves six months to amend the law," said Polish Deputy Interior Minister Wieslaw Szczepanski.

What changes should Ukrainians expect?


Among the possible changes is the abolition of the temporary protection status after leaving Poland, even for a short period, as is currently limited to 30 days. The government believes that Ukrainians traveling home for holidays or vacations indicate that they may not need temporary protection. A similar approach is already being applied to Ukrainian refugees in Norway.


There is also an initiative to change the conditions for receiving social benefits. Although the details are not yet available, the government is preparing to hold consultations with ministries, local governments, and organizations that provide assistance to Ukrainian refugees.

Please note! To ensure a safe stay abroad, you should take care of reliable health insurance in advance, which will not only help you maintain your health, but also protect you from unforeseen expenses.
