21.04.2022 - Artikel

Persons from Ukraine who are seeking protection can find information on the central platform www.germany4ukraine.de. It will soon also be possible to initiate the procedure to receive a residence permit granting temporary protection in Germany via this platform.

As a result of the war in Ukraine, the following persons may receive temporary protection in Germany for an initial period of two years:

1. Ukrainian nationals residing in Ukraine prior to 24 February 2022, and their immediate family members;

2. Stateless persons and non-Ukrainian nationals with international or equivalent national protection in Ukraine prior to 24 February 2022, and their immediate family members;

3. Stateless persons and non-Ukrainian nationals who can prove that they were legally resident in Ukraine prior to 24 February 2022 on the basis of a valid unrestricted residence permit issued under Ukrainian law and who are not in a position to return safely and permanently to their country or region of origin; and

4. Non-Ukrainian nationals, if they can prove that they were legally resident in and not just temporarily visiting Ukraine on 24 February 2022 and who are not in a position to return safely and permanently to their country or region of origin.

Visa for entering Germany for persons from Ukraine seeking protection

Ukrainian nationals holding a biometric passport can enter Germany without a visa. However, Ukrainian nationals who do not have a biometric passport can also enter Germany and stay there without a visa at present.

This regulation will initially be in force until 31 August 2022.
