Refugees from Ukraine who continue to arrive in Germany are usually accommodated in temporary reception centers. After that, they are further distributed among the federal states.


However, the housing situation in the country is currently quite difficult.


We will tell you which states of Germany are accepting Ukrainians in July 2024 in the article.


Peculiarities of Ukrainian refugees' accommodation in Germany


Ukrainians should be prepared for a long stay in refugee shelters, such as dormitories, hangars, or even gyms. This is due to the difficult housing situation in the country.


Due to the high level of migration, some areas of Germany have repeatedly warned of limited capacity to accept new refugees.


Please note! Refugees cannot independently choose a federal state for further residence. Even if you arrive at a camp in a particular state, you may be redirected to another state. To move to your preferred federal state, you need to obtain a special permit. This permit is only granted for valid reasons, such as having a job, spouse or minor children.


Recommendations for choosing reception centers


It is better to choose a camp with the most convenient transportation, as the living conditions are almost the same in all reception centers for refugees. After registration, it is almost impossible to change the place of reception, the information about registration is one-time - you will not be accepted elsewhere.


Current reception centers for refugees in July 2024


Baden-Württemberg (Baden-Württemberg)


From the reception centers of Baden-Württemberg, the distribution goes to other federal states, in particular to Bavaria, Rhineland-Palatinate and Hesse.

• Karlsruhe (Durlacher Allee 100, 76137 Karlsruhe): open, but often distributes to other federal states. You can arrive by your own car, but the vehicle must be parked outside the reception center. Refugees with animals larger than a cat are not accepted.

• Meßstetten (Geißbühlstraße 51, 72469 Meßstetten): Located in an inaccessible location, so it is better to get there by car. Refugees with pets are not accepted.

• Freiburg (Basler Landstraße 16, 79111 Freiburg): Does not accept refugees in need of special medical care. Refugees with pets can live in this camp, but dogs must be on a leash at all times.


Bavaria (Bayern)


• Munich (Dachauer Str. 122a, 80637 München): This reception center is used for distribution across Bavaria. There may be problems for those who come with pets. Animals are required to be given somewhere else, further distribution with animals is impossible, and shelters are overcrowded.


Berlin


• Tegel (old airport): The territory of the reception center is closed. You can get inside only by a special bus.


- If you are arriving by car: leave your car in the parking lot and take the bus in the P3 parking lot in front of building 109.

- If you are coming by public transport, the bus goes from Berlin-Jungfernheide station, the bus stop is on Olberstraße/Gallesteig.


(Trains from Eastern Europe arrive at a different station, Berlin-Gesundbrunnen, from which you need to take a city train to Berlin-Jungfernheide station. All routes are available on Google Maps).


Useful contacts:


• https://service.berlin.de/standort/330887/ - all information, including the center's telephone line.

If you are arriving late and without a car, contact the Bahnhofsmission in Frankfurt, they can accommodate you for one night. To get there, you first need to take the train from Frankfurt to Gießen Bf. Then take bus 1 or 17 to the Sophie-Scholl-Schule stop.


North Rhine-Westphalia (Nordrhein-Westfalen)

• Boostedt (Von-dem-Borne-Straße, 24598 Boostedt): As of June 2024, there have been cases of immediate transfer to another reception center (e.g. Seeth) due to lack of space. Accepts pets, including large dogs.

• Seeth (Hauptstraße 100, 23845 Seeth): Accepts pets, including large dogs.


Thuringia (Thüringen)


• Eisenberg (Jenaer Str. 49, 07607 Eisenberg), Suhl (Weidbergstr. 10, 98527 Suhl) and Nordhausen (Neuer Weg 34, 99735 Werthe): Accepts, but only when there is space. Reception is subject to refusal.


Peculiarities of employment of Ukrainians in Germany


Ukrainian immigrants with temporary protection in Germany can officially work without any difficulties. Restrictions apply only to those who have arrived on the basis of a biometric passport or visa and have been granted refugee status. 

To obtain a work permit, you need to apply to the Foreigners' Registration Office. When a residence permit is issued, a record is made in the document about the possibility of engaging in paid work, even if a specific job is not yet available. No other permits are required. 

German labor market experts believe that Ukrainian refugees have good chances of finding employment in the medium term, according to a survey by the Institute for Research on the Labor Market and Professions (IAB).


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.


We remind you! Citizens of Ukraine can obtain a Blue Card for long-term residence and employment in Germany. It allows not only to work and live in the country, but also provides an opportunity to obtain a permanent residence permit and even citizenship.
