Want to apply for protection

People who have fled Ukraine may be granted temporary collective protection for one year. Your protection permit may be extended.

Collective protection means that UDI does not assess the need for protection individually but gives Ukrainians fleeing the war in Ukraine and their family members collective protection. This ensures that Ukrainians fleeing the war will get the help they need faster.
