Further advice if you have family in the UK

The UK government has released details of the Homes for Ukraine scheme on its website.  The scheme offers a route to those who want to come to the UK who have someone here willing to provide them with a home. 

People arriving under this scheme will be able to live and work in the UK for up to three years and access healthcare, benefits, employment support, education and English language tuition.

If you have a family member in the UK and you are fleeing Ukraine then they can record their interest as a sponsor of the Ukraine Family Scheme visa. For more information, please read here for more information.
