The Sejm has adopted an amendment to the Special Law

During today’s session in the Sejm, after the third reading, the latest draft bill on assistance to Ukrainian citizens in connection with the armed conflict in that country was adopted. According to the adopted content of the law, the period of stay recognized in Poland as legal and related privileges for citizens of Ukraine are to be in force until 30 June 2024. This is a marked change from recent announcements of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Administration about which we wrote several days ago. This is because as recently as last week, representatives of the Ministry announced plans to extend existing provisions under the Special Act until September 2024.

The Sejm’s work on the project was exceptionally brief – the first reading took place on Wednesday, February 7, 2024. The State Secretary in the Ministry of the Internal Affairs , presenting the current amendment project on Wednesday, informed about the ongoing inter-ministerial work on further substantive changes to the law on assistance to Ukrainian citizens in connection with the armed conflict in their country.

We will monitor further developments in the legislative process and will keep you updated on its next stages.
