New rules for staying in Ukraine: The law on granting special rights to Polish citizens came into force
On September 16, the law "On the Establishment of Additional Legal and Social Guarantees for Citizens of the Republic of Poland Staying in the Territory of Ukraine" came into force in Ukraine. It was adopted in response to the Polish law on assistance to citizens of Ukraine in connection with the armed conflict.
The new Ukrainian law stipulates that citizens of Poland (as well as their spouses and children, regardless of citizenship) can legally stay on the territory of Ukraine for 18 months and enjoy all the rights and freedoms, like citizens of Ukraine.
In particular, Poles now have the right to:
• Employment without any additional permits (including scientific-pedagogical and medical workers);
• conducting business activities on the territory of Ukraine with the same rights as citizens of Ukraine;
• social benefits, including cases of incapacity for work, loss of breadwinner, unemployment, disability, etc.;
• free education and receiving scholarships
• medical assistance with the same rights as Ukrainians;
• state registration as a taxpayer and obtaining the registration number of the taxpayer's registration card.
Also, Polish citizens have the right to extend their stay in Ukraine for more than 18 months and obtain a residence permit. This is possible under the condition of enrollment in studies, conclusion of a long-term employment contract, etc.
