The Swiss State Secretariat for Immigration (SEM) reports that if Ukrainians travel to Ukraine for more than 15 days a quarter, their S protection status may be revoked. During this period, travel to Ukraine and return to Switzerland is allowed. This rule does not apply if you have left to prepare for the final departure home or have stayed in Ukraine longer for a good reason (for example, seriously ill relatives) and you can prove it. Revocation of a residence permit can also occur if the person has been in a third country for more than 2 months and the SEM may assume that you have moved your life there.


The SEM also determined that binational couples are not entitled to S protection status in Switzerland if one of the two persons is a citizen of the EU / EFTA countries, the United Kingdom, Canada, the United States, New Zealand or Australia. Also, if a person has already been granted protection status in another state, the protection status S will not be granted to him/her in Switzerland.
