Information on refugees from Ukraine

As a neighbouring country of the European Union, there are many economic and socio-cultural ties with Ukraine. Under German residence law, it was already possible for Ukrainian citizens to stay in Germany without a visa for 90 days. There is also an association agreement with the European Union, which includes a free trade area.

Due to the current situation, there have now been some changes in the regulations. In addition, a deliberate effort is to be made to integrate Ukrainian nationals into the German labour market. In the following we present the current conditions and possibilities. We also point out central contact and counselling centres that refugees from Ukraine and their companions and supporters can turn to.
