Relaxation of the terms of mobility allowance

Mobility allowance is generous benefit. It enables you to take a job further away. The Parliament has approved an amendment relaxing the conditions of mobility allowance.

Entry into force 78/2020

  • Issued to Parliament on 20 May 2020
  • Approved after amendments by Parliament on 2 June 2020
  • Signed by the President on 11 June 2020
  • Entry into force 12 June 2020

The President has confirmed a Government proposal approved by Parliament (HE78/2020) according to which a mobility allowance may be granted for a full-time job if the return commute lasts at least two hours. Before the amendment, the duration requirement of the commute was at least three hours.

The two-hour commute requirement will apply to employment contracts that start when the law enters into force and before 1 January 2021. In other words, full-time employment contracts starting between 12 June 2020 and 30 June 2021.
