Draft law on amending the Act on assistance to Ukrainian citizens | PRO HR Alert

2022.03.18

The Parliament is processing draft law on amending the Act on assistance to Ukrainian citizens in connection with armed conflict on the territory of that country.

Thanks to the amendment, the Act will cover the protection of all Ukrainian citizens who entered Poland after 24 February 2022.

Currently, the protection does not cover people who entered Poland from a country other than Ukraine after February 24, 2022 while fleeing the war. 

Due to the phrase "entered directly from Ukraine" given in the Act, Ukrainian citizens who chose a different route to Poland, e.g. through Hungary or Slovakia, cannot benefit from the solutions provided therein.  

This might change soon.
