Transport Minister Andrej Doležal (Sme Rodina nom.) announced that this is the third phase of allowances for the accommodation of refugees fleeing the war in Ukraine.

The aim of the regulation is to ensure the continued protection of life and human dignity of people fleeing the war to Slovakia, who are being provided with accommodation by natural or legal persons in an accommodation facility.

According to the amendment to the regulation approved last week, the allowance will be in the amount of the declared costs per bed increased by a factor of 1.1. The maximum sum will be €24.20 per night for a resident aged 15 and over and €12.10 for those under 15 years of age.

At the same time, the regulation allows people providing accommodation to refugees from July 1 to September 30, 2022 to request reimbursement of eligible costs if they did not do so based on the regulation effective at the time of providing accommodation.

In this case, the allowance will be a maximum of €22 for one night for a resident who has turned 15, and €11 for a resident under the age of 15.

In the first phase of the aid, the ministry paid allowances in the amount of approximately €5 million, and in the second phase from July to September more than €11 million. Doležal added that the third phase is expected to be similar to the second phase.
