Ukraine Scheme briefing

We've written a briefing about the government's Ukraine Scheme.

In March 2022 in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the UK government launched new immigration routes for Ukrainians fleeing the conflict to come to the UK and concessions for those already in the UK to extend their stay. These new routes are collectively known as Ukraine Scheme. This briefing aims to explain the policy background, the new visa routes and their potential impact on local authorities.

This briefing includes a summary of the following:

  • The policy background and development of the Ukraine Scheme.
  • The details, conditions and requirements of the visa routes.
  • The possible impacts on local authorities and communities.
