The UK offers a visa scheme, the Homes for Ukraine scheme, aimed at allowing Ukrainian citizens to live and work in the UK for a limited period. The visa schemes were introduced in 2022, following the invasion of Ukraine by Russian forces in February that year.

In response to the conflict, many countries pledged their support to Ukraine and its people. Many of them, including the UK, sent aid to Ukraine as well as actioning plans to allow those fleeing the conflict to access to their safe borders.

The Homes for Ukraine visa scheme has specific requirements and depends on your own personal circumstances. You will find more information the visa by following the links below. Should you have any questions, you can book a free consultation with us today.
