Ukrainians in Poland: obtaining a residence permit from April 1

Ukrainians in PolandStarting from April 1, Ukrainians in Poland who have Polish identification codes for their arrival in Poland after February 24, 2022, can apply for a temporary residence permit, in other words, to obtain a residence card.

This will provide Ukrainian refugees with long-term guarantees for legal residence and employment in Poland.

According to a study by EWL and the Center for East European Studies at the University of Warsaw, only 6% of Ukrainian citizens intend to stay permanently. Maria Kuzenko, Head of the Legalization Department of the EWL Migration Platform, noted that this category of Ukrainian citizens will be the first to apply for a temporary residence permit in Poland.

“It’s hard to estimate what percentage of officially employed Ukrainians will do so. However, we see an increasing interest among Ukrainians who consult us in legalization matters.   They want to have long-term residence documents to understand how long they can stay in Poland and how to plan their lives.”
