The German authorities have published changes to the rules for the stay of Ukrainians fleeing the war to Germany. According to the innovations, from September 1, Germany will start counting visa-free days of stay in the country.


Until August 31, Ukrainians are allowed to stay in Germany regardless of the use of visa-free or deportation, however, those who by the time of September 1 will have exhausted visa-free travel will either have to leave the country for 90 days or have temporary protection registration in order to continue to stay in Germany legally. Accordingly, persons whose visa-free stay expires before 31 August must apply for temporary protection in Germany by 1 September. Citizens whose visa-free stay in Germany ends between September 1 and December 1 must also apply for registration under paragraph 24.
