The cost of supporting refugees from Ukraine in the 2022-23 financial year will be determined by the number of arrivals by end March 2023. As of 14 July 2022, total arrivals of Ukraine Scheme visa holders in the UK are 95,400, of which 29,700 have arrived under the Ukraine Family Scheme and 65,600 have arrived under the Ukraine Sponsorship Scheme.

Eligible costs will be reported as ODA and counted towards the 0.5% GNI ODA spending commitment. ODA spend is measured on a calendar year basis, so ODA costs incurred for the 2022-23 financial year will be included in the ODA reporting for the 2022 and 2023 calendar years. ODA eligible spend is reported in the government’s annual Statistics on International Development publication.[1]
