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

Hungary’s Foreign Minister, Peter Szijjarto, announced that the Hungarian government will support employers who provide jobs for refugees from Ukraine with housing and transportation opportunities.

According to a press release from the Hungarian government on March 14, employers who meet the above requirements will receive 60,000 HUF or 160 EUR per month for each Ukrainian refugee they employ and 12,000 HUF or 32 EUR for each of their children, reports.

In this regard, Minister Szijjártó added: “Job opportunities will be provided to those who plan to stay in Hungary for a long time” because in Hungary we are building a society based on work, which has been a successful project”.

He stressed that Hungary is ready and ready to receive the increasing numbers of refugees, noting that refugees who stay longer have a special interest in getting a job rather than living off benefits.

The data shows that about 267,570 refugees have been registered in Hungary since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on February 24.

In a press release issued on March 4, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban indicated that Hungarian-speaking refugees with connections to Hungary would find it easier to find work and housing.

As for foreigners who resided in Ukraine before the invasion, and who now want to enter Hungary, for example, from India and China, they can come and go by agreement from the embassy of their country of origin 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 large Hungarian population. The Prime Minister indicated that the United Nations expects about 250,000 refugees to arrive in Hungary before the end of the war.

In addition, the Hungarian government spokeswoman, Alexandra Zintekirali, after visiting the logistics center of the Hungarian Charitable Service in Malta, expressed her appreciation for all the support and security that the North provides to protect most Ukrainians.

Szentkirályi also mentioned and thanked all the cross-border collaborators helping 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 asylum in neighboring countries.
