• Persons granted refugee status or humanitarian status must leave the centers of the State Agency for Refugees within 14 days of receiving the decision on international protection.
  • Renting an apartment is the most preferred accommodation option among newly recognized refugees and persons with humanitarian status. For this purpose, it is necessary to find housing (apartment or house) and sign a lease agreement with the owner of the property.
  • Usually, when you sign the contract, you must pay the first month’s rent and a deposit equal to your monthly rent. This means that you must have the resource for two rentals when you enter into the contract.
  • Remember that you have to pay separately the monthly costs for electricity, water, heating (if provided centrally), which can vary greatly depending on the property. Ask your landlord about the average monthly amount to cover all utility bills.
