If you have been forced to flee Ukraine but do not have Ukrainian citizenship, refugees who resided in Ukraine on the basis of a temporary residence permit and were registered with the municipality in the Dutch population register (BRP) before 19 July 2022, can make use of remigration assistance from the Repatriation & Departure Service (DT&V) starting 15 November 2022. This will allow you to travel back to your country of origin or another country outside the European Union. The support includes an amount of €5000 per person, if you travel back before 31 December 2022.

Advice and information on remigration;
A one-way plane ticket;
Escorted departure at Schiphol Airport; and
A one-time financial contribution, which you will receive upon departure at Schiphol Airport.
If you apply between 15 November and 31 December 2022, and travel from the Netherlands within 1 month after applying, you will receive compensation of 5,000 euros per person.
If you apply between 1 January and 1 February 2023, and travel from the Netherlands within 1 month after applying, you will receive compensation of 2,000 euros per person.
