Ukraine Refugee Rules

On March 4, 2022, the European Council has activated Directive 2001/55/EC and introduced temporary protection of individuals fleeing Ukraine as a consequence of the Russian invasion.

Scope of protection

The Directive aims to provide immediate assistance and protection to the war refugees without the need to go through long and complex asylum procedures.
Individuals that are covered by the Directive will receive a protection status that includes residence inside an EU Member State (except Denmark), access to the labour market, education system, healthcare and housing.
