Because of the current Russia - Ukraine war, many Ukrainians are now fleeing their country hoping to find safety in other places. Until now, around 4 million residents have left Ukraine, seeking refuge in neighboring countries (Poland and Romania) or any other nation, making it the fastest-growing refugee crisis since World War II.
Empathizing with all Ukrainians and the tough situation that this war has brought upon them, OneFor is now offering a financial solution to anyone in need.
How it works?
Since having a bank account requires many documents that Ukrainian citizens might not be able to provide now, OneFor is offering a free account and debit card to all those that are now out of Ukraine.
The account can be opened by following these simple steps:
1. Download the app for free, either in the App Store or Google Play Store, or sign up directly from the browser
2. Register with phone number and email
3. Complete identity verification
Seeing as refugees do not have a permanent address in these other countries, OneFor will be alleviating the Proof of Address document requirement.
The identity verification process requires the following documents:
1. Ukrainian foreign Passport
2. A copy of a registration letter with an indication of a temporary residence address in EU.
