In Poland, most Ukrainian refugees find employment, and this trend is a significant part of the migration process. Some of the newly arrived Ukrainians choose Poland not only as a place to seek asylum, but also to find work.


The analytical center of the international agency Gremi Personal presented the results of a survey of 1399 workers from Ukraine who were looking for employment in Poland. 


We will tell you why Ukrainian citizens choose Poland to work in, as well as from which parts of Ukraine they come most often.


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. You can take out an insurance policy that covers emergency medical care in case of illnesses and accidents, as well as inpatient and outpatient care around the world on the Visit Ukraine website. In addition, on our portal, you can immediately apply for car insurance - the Green Card, which is mandatory in 50 countries, including the EU.


From which regions of Ukraine do most refugees come to Poland?


According to the survey, most Ukrainians come from the following regions:


• Dnipropetrovska - 9.82%;

• Khmelnytska - 6.8%;

• Ivano-Frankivska - 6.3%;

• Lvivska - 6.05%;

• Volynska - 5.79%;

• Rivnenska - 5.79%;

• Kharkivska - 5.29%;

• Zhytomyrska - 5.29%;

• Vinnytska - 4.53%.


This is important to take into account, as the large number of Ukrainian workers in Poland has an impact on the economy and social sphere of both countries. According to analysts, more than half of the respondents are urban residents, which indicates a variety of sources of migration.


Changes in the geography of arrival of Ukrainians are also worth noting. Previously, the majority of migrants came from regions that were affected by the hostilities, but recently the trend has changed. Now, most Ukrainian workers come from different regions of Ukraine, which indicates that the situation in the country has stabilized.

In particular, in March-May 2022, most Ukrainian workers came from the following regions of Ukraine:


• Dnipropetrovsk- 11.5%;

• Zaporizhzhia - 8.31%;

• Kharkiv - 7.81%;

• Donetsk - 6.63%;

• Kherson - 5.75%;

• Kyiv - 5.61;

• Poltava - 4.87%;

• Lviv - 4.41%;

• Mykolaiv - 4.41%;

• Vinnytsia - 4.36%.


These data also point to important aspects of emigration from Ukraine, including how the war has affected the places of arrival and job opportunities. According to Anna Dzhobolda, Director of Recruitment at Gremi Personal, despite the war, the geographical distribution is leveling off, and there are still those who are actively looking for work in Poland.


According to official data, as of the end of 2023, 750 thousand Ukrainian citizens were registered in Poland as officially employed. This is an important factor that reflects the great contribution of Ukrainian labor migrants to the economic development of Poland.

We remind you! The Polish government is planning to consider a number of updated rules for Ukrainian citizens who have taken refuge in the country since the beginning of the full-scale war. Read more about what may change for refugees in Poland in the near future in our previous article.
