In the Czech Republic, the rules for Ukrainian refugees have changed

New rules for providing assistance and housing to refugees from Ukraine were introduced in the Czech Republic.

This is reported by Suspilne.

What has changed?

  1. The time of stay in free housing was limited to 150 days.

  2. Vulnerable categories of the population can live in free housing for a longer period of time.

  3. The payment system was also reformed: from now on, there will be no different types of cash assistance. Ukrainians will receive a single comprehensive payment.

A single cash payment will cover housing costs and other needs.

At the beginning of 2023, about half a million Ukrainian refugees lived in the Czech Republic.

Who will not be affected by the changes:

  • students under 25 years old;

  • parents of children under 6 years old;

  • pregnant women;

  • people with disabilities or those who care for people with disabilities.

One of the main reasons why the rules for refugees were changed in the Czech Republic is financial. The country's government is forced to economize and can no longer spend so much money on refugees.
