From 15 November 2022 to 1 February 2023, you can apply for temporary financial support from the Dutch Repatriation & Departure Service (DT&V) to return to your country of origin, Ukraine or another country outside the European Union.

Requirements for DT&V remigration support

To qualify for the remigration scheme, you must meet the following conditions:

  • You have or had a (temporary) residence permit in Ukraine.

  • You are registered in the BRP, with a Dutch municipality, before 19 July 2022.

  • You cooperate with the DT&V by providing the necessary information and by following its instructions.

  • You declare in writing to withdraw or waive any pending admission procedures.

  • You hold citizenship of a third country, which is not: Ukraine, an EU country, Australia, Canada, Iceland, Japan, Korea, Mexico, New Zealand, the United States or Switzerland.

  • You have a valid travel document that allows you to travel to the country of origin or a country outside the European Union.

The content of DT&V's remigration support
