I am waiting for a decision on my application for individual protection. Why are my rights so restricted?

Refugees from Ukraine who are eligible for collective protection will have their applications answered fairly quickly. Those who are not eligible for collective protection and, thus, are waiting for the outcome of an individual assessment of their applications, have different rights because no decision has been reached on their applications yet. Those whose applications are pending may apply for the right to work in the meantime, but they are not allowed to travel abroad. Those who have already been granted individual protection are allowed to work, and they may also travel up to half of the period their residence permit is valid for.
