Another way to support IDPs was through introducing a special service in the Diia application for government services, which simplified the process of registration, residence address change, and deregistration of IDPs.

As reported, IDPs may apply for a subsidy to cover their bills at their actual place of residence. At the same time, no rent (lease) contracts are required to this end.
