In order to provide Ukrainian war refugees with a personal identification code and a temporary residence permit immediately upon arrival in Estonia, reception centres for war refugees were opened in the city Pärnu on 21 March and in the city of Tartu on 28 March.

Directions:

The reception centre in the city of Pärnu is open 24 hours a day. Personnel at the reception centre provide people coming from Ukraine with information and identify what kind of assistance a person needs, whether social or psychological.

This saves time for people who arrive in Estonia and is the fastest way to enter the labour market in the country and to obtain a place at school or kindergarten. Ukrainian war refugees are then transferred to temporary accommodation facilities across the country.
