Note on accommodation
Since 1st June, assistance and social benefits for refugees from Ukraine in need of assistance have been provided in accordance with the German Social Security Code II. This means that there are simplifications to the requirements regarding your place of residence, such as the assumption of costs for accommodation and heating. For this reason, unlike asylum seekers, you are responsible for your own accommodation.
Be careful when looking for a flat, as it is possible that scammers are taking advantage of the current situation. Look out for the following indications:
- The flat is too cheap (hidden defects)
- Online money transfer in advance
- Cash payment of the deposit at the viewing
Never pay money before having signed a tenancy agreement.
You can enter Germany with or without applying for asylum. Applying for asylum is not necessary because the European Union is implementing an admission procedure for war refugees from Ukraine in accordance with the EU Temporary Protection Directive. This means that admission to Germany is unbureaucratic in accordance with section 24 of the Residence Act, and displaced persons from Ukraine do not have to go through the asylum procedure.
To take part in the reception programme for war refugees from Ukraine, you must apply for a residence permit for temporary protection in accordance with section 24 of the Residence Act. You can apply for this permit at your local foreigners authority, which you can find in the BAMF-NAvI directory at .
