Many Ukrainians who traveled to the EU at the beginning of the full-scale invasion and obtained temporary protection status there have already returned home. However, the war is on, the shelling continues, and quite often Ukrainians decide to go back to Europe. 


According to the procedure, before leaving Europe, refugees had to give up their temporary protection status. Therefore, many Ukrainians are now concerned about whether they can expect to receive temporary protection status again.


Find out all about the rules for obtaining a work visa, its types and the documents required here.


Ukrainians can renew their protection in the EU


According to the Temporary Protection Directive, any Ukrainian fleeing the war and leaving Ukraine after February 24, 2022, can be granted asylum in the EU. The document is valid for one year, but can be extended if the grounds for granting it remain, i.e., the war is still ongoing.


Ukrainians who have been granted asylum in European countries have the right to temporarily return to Ukraine or travel to Schengen countries without revoking their permit. To do this, you must stay outside the country of asylum for no more than 90 days. 


If you have returned to Ukraine for a longer period of time and your documents have already been revoked in the EU, then despite the refusal, Ukrainians still have the right to re-apply for temporary protection status. To do this, it is enough to come to the EU at any time.

The procedure for renewing temporary protection status in the EU


According to EU law, in order to re-apply for asylum, you need to undergo a registration procedure. You can also obtain the status in another EU country, without having to return to the country where you resided when you first entered. 


You should check with the consulate of the country you are going to, as the rules of stay and the registration procedure are regulated by the legislation of each individual country. 


The final decision on whether to grant a repeat temporary protection status rests with the country of asylum. Each case is considered individually. 


We remind you! Many travelers are already booking vacations in different parts of the world, but European countries are leading the way in terms of the number of bookings. We will tell you how to travel around some EU countries conveniently and affordably using public transport in our previous article here.
