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 in the Netherlands, 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.

  • A one-time financial contribution, which you will receive upon departure at Schiphol Airport.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

As of 1 February 2023, regular remigration assistance will be back in effect.

Please note: the remigration support is intended only for refugees from Ukraine, who resided in Ukraine on the basis of a temporary residence permit and were registered the BRP before 19 July 2022.
