Moving to Ukraine with a disability

Hello everyone,

Having a disability should not be a barrier to living abroad. While the intricacies of one’s move to Ukraine may be specific to the individual, certain steps can be undertaken to make the process smoother.

What are the important aspects you would personally keep in mind during the planning phase (social security benefits, ongoing medical treatment, etc.)?

Are you required to go through a medical check-up before your move?

Are there any organisations or groups who lend support to expatriates who have a disability?

What are your thoughts on the infrastructure in Ukraine (public spaces, transportation and buildings)?

Are there enough opportunities to make the most of your social life in Ukraine? Are leisure activities made accessible to people with disabilities? 

Please do share your experience with us.


Pedestrian zone, public elevators, public transport etc. All that in Ukraine make hardly difficult live there well for people with disabilities.
