The Government has launched a number of schemes aimed at helping those fleeing from the war in Ukraine. These include the Ukraine Family Scheme, the Homes for Ukraine Scheme and the Ukraine Extension Scheme

Ukrainian nationals who had permission to stay in the UK on or before 18 March 2022, or are in the UK with permission that expired after 1 January 2022, are eligible to apply to the Ukraine Extension Scheme. Those applying under this scheme do not have to pay visa fees.

Those granted permission under any of the Ukraine schemes have access to public funds as well as permission to work and study for up to three years.

We continue to keep the UK Government’s support under review and will adapt and develop the visa routes in place to ensure they keep pace with the situation in Ukraine and the needs of those who have sought sanctuary here.
