Information about finance for Ukrainian refugees.
Refugees who do not have enough money to pay for necessary costs can sometimes be reimbursed for these costs. This concerns certain necessary costs that cannot be paid in any other way (such as living allowance or income from work). These can be costs for travel, sudden medical reasons or costs for school transport for children of compulsory school age. More information can be found on the page Special costs for refugees from Ukraine (in Dutch).
If you do not have enough money to live on, you can apply for a living allowance. Depending on where you are staying, you can receive a living allowance for food and beverages, housing allowance and/or for personal expenses such as clothing. More information can be found on the page Living Allowance for Refugees from Ukraine.
You will need a Dutch bank account to receive your living allowance. You can start applying for your account in advance. You can find information about opening a bank account via the website www.refugeehelp.nl.
