From March 5, 2023, refugees from Ukraine who use the Diia.pl application will be able to add their child’s data. This is a significant change that increases the security and facilitates the stay of Ukrainian citizens covered by temporary protection in Poland. So far, the possibility of using Diia.pl has been limited to persons over 13 years of age. In the current legal status, parents will be able to add children’s data to their account in the application, which will allow for the confirmation of their identity and status.
We would like to remind you that Diia.pl is an electronic residence document for refugees from Ukraine, it allows foreigners to confirm their most important data, such as name, surname, PESEL number, date and place of birth and citizenship. Diia.pl gives you the ability to safely display personal data, confirm your identity and exercise the rights provided for by Polish law. Together with a valid travel document, Diia.pl entitles you to cross the border and constitutes evidence confirming the fact that a foreigner enjoys temporary protection in Poland.
The Diia.pl service can be used by persons covered by temporary protection in Poland under the Act of March 12, 2022 on assistance to Ukrainian citizens in connection with the armed conflict in the territory of this country, who have obtained a PESEL-UKR number.
To use the Diia.pl service, all you need to do is log in to the mObywatel application and download the Diia electronic document, which will confirm important information. The authentication process is carried out using the Trusted Profile. In the “Children” tab, you can select the data of the child for whom you want to download the document. After selecting the statements in the application, a digital version of the document confirming the child’s data will appear.
In order to use the Diia.pl service for children, certain conditions must be met. Information about your children will be available and typeable if:
– the child has the UKR status in the register,
– has a registered application for a PESEL number related to the conflict in Ukraine (with a photo),
– is associated with the user’s PESEL number (only the parent whose PESEL number is associated with the child’s record will have access to the child’s data),
– the child is a minor.
