Hungary to Provide Financial Support to Employers Giving Jobs to Refugees Coming From Ukraine


The Foreign Minister of Hungary, Péter Szijjártó, has announced that the Hungarian government will support employers who give jobs to refugees coming from Ukraine while also providing the latter with housing and transportation opportunities.

According to a press release issued on March 14 by the government of Hungary, employers who meet the above conditions will receive 60,000 HUF or €160 per month for each Ukrainian refugee they employ and an additional 12,000 HUF or €32 for each of their children, SchengenVisaInfo.com reports.

“Work opportunities will be offered to those that plan to stay in Hungary for a lengthy period “because in Hungary we are building a work-based society, which has been a successful undertaking,” Minister Szijjártó added in this regard.

He also stressed that Hungary is ready and prepared to receive the growing number of refugees while pointing out that refugees who stay longer have a special interest in having a job instead of living from benefits.

Data show that about 267,570 refugees have been registered in Hungary since Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24.

In a press release issued on March 4, Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán had pointed out that refugees who are Hungarian-speaking and have ties to Hungary will find it easier to find work and housing.

As for foreigners who had been residing in Ukraine before the invasion, who now want to enter Hungary, for example, those from India and China, they can come and go by agreement from the embassy of their home country located in Hungary.

Hungary is also working to provide housing and supplies and is constantly working to provide jobs and school places for students fleeing the war.

“Hungary is also sending “unprecedented amounts of food and fuel” to Transcarpathia, the western Ukrainian region with a sizable ethnic Hungarian population. The UN is projecting some 250,000 refugees to arrive in Hungary before the end of the war,” the Prime Minister noted.

In addition, the Government spokeswoman of Hungary, Alexandra Szentkirályi, after visiting the logistics centre of the Hungarian Charity Service of Malta, appreciated all the support and security that the north was offering to protect the most Ukrainian people.

Szentkirályi also mentioned and thanked all the cross-border collaborators who are assisting Ukrainian refugees, including police, disaster and relief workers, local governments, government agencies, and volunteers.

The United Nations has reported that more than three million Ukrainian refugees have fled their country since the start of the war in Ukraine, seeking refuge in neighbouring countries.
