On this page you will find information about displaced persons from Ukraine who do not have Ukrainian nationality. It also contains information important for your stay in the Netherlands, regardless of whether you hold Ukrainian nationality.
From November 11, 2022 to February 1, 2023, the Repatriation & Departure Service offers extended remigration support. This remigration support is intended for refugees from Ukraine who do not have Ukrainian nationality and are covered until March 4, 2023 under the Temporary Protection Directive on the basis of a temporary residence permit in Ukraine and registration in the BRP before July 19, 2022.
In addition to people holding Ukrainian citizenship, there are also many people who resided in Ukraine on temporary or permanent residence permits; the third-country nationals.
The Russian invasion of Ukraine caused many people to have to flee from Ukraine. Including many third-country nationals. This group of people fell under the Temporary Protection Directive from the beginning of the Russian invasion, provided they could be registered in the Basic Registration of Persons (BRP). In July 2022, the Dutch government made some changes to who does and does not fall under the Temporary Protection Directive.
People who resided in Ukraine with a temporary residence permit and were registered in the BRP before July 19, 2022, are covered by the Temporary Protection Directive until March 4, 2023. People who resided with a temporary residence permit in Ukraine and came to the Netherlands after July 19, 2022, are not covered by the Temporary Protection Directive.
From Nov. 15, the Repatriation and Departure Service (DT&V) can offer you additional support and a financial contribution for return to Ukraine, your country of origin or a country outside the European Union.
Please note: this remigration scheme is only for third-country nationals who resided in Ukraine on the basis of a (temporary) residence permit at the time of the Russian invasion and were registered in the BRP before July 19, 2022 and are covered by the Temporary Protection Directive until March 4, 2023.
