Hungary simplifies employment of Ukrainian refugees

From May, Ukrainian refugees will be able to accept all kinds of work in Hungary without a work permit. In addition, employers receive allowances when hiring Ukrainian citizens who have fled their country due to the invasion of Russia.

Hungary supports Ukrainian refugees

according to Magyar NemzetteThe simplification is related to Ukrainian citizens who have applied for asylum. If not, the rules are the same as for citizens of other third countries. It only works in sectors that are suffering from labor shortages, such as IT, catering, and construction. And only Ukrainian citizens with biometric passports can take advantage of the state’s interests.

Many Ukrainian refugees worked in Hungary before the war. Many employers are now helping relatives find employment.

If a Ukrainian employee works for at least 90 days and arrives in Hungary after the outbreak of the war and applies for or receives asylum, the state pays the employer an allowance. The maximum total amount, if arrived before the war, is currently 30,000 HUF (77.75 euros) per employee per month. If they come after the start of the Russian invasion, the amount will increase to 60,000 forint (€ 154) per employee per month. In addition, each child living with an employee will receive a monthly fee of 12,000 HUF (31.1 euros).
