Q: Where can I sign up to host?
A: A: Firstly, thank you for showing interest and helping people in need. For a thorough list of organizations that pair Ukrainian refugees with hosts, please read our article “Where can I sign up to host Ukrainian refugees?”
Q: How long do people typically host refugees?
A: This is a complicated answer – anywhere from two weeks to several months.
While the situation is still unfolding, here is some guidance:
- If you rent: you can host people for up to six weeks without approval from a landlord
- If you own: two weeks is the shortest amount of time most places ask for, however, be aware that the various registration processes can take more than a month. So, while offering any amount of time is kind (and better than not offering accommodation), periods of more than four weeks – and ideally several months – are preferred.
Q: What is the registration process like? What should I do first when the refugees arrive?
A: This varies from city to city. Take a look at our step-by-step guides to Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, and Stuttgart
