Government Support Schemes

As a humanitarian crisis unfolds in Ukraine, we want to help support all of our Ukrainian residents, and anyone with friends and families affected by, or concerned about, events in Ukraine. There are various support groups, organisations and information to support Ukrainian people coming to the UK.

The UK government is currently operating three schemes:

Ukraine Family Scheme

The Ukraine Family Scheme is designed to enable Ukrainian applicants to join their family members in the UK.

Homes for Ukraine

The government opened the Homes for Ukraine visa scheme on 18 March 2022 for visa applications from Ukrainian applicants who have named people in the UK willing to sponsor them.

The Ukraine Extension Scheme

The Scheme is open to some Ukrainian nationals and their family members who have, or previously had, permission to be in the UK.
