Currently, it is quite common for Ukrainians who have received temporary protection in one of the EU countries to want to move to another country because their living conditions and social assistance are changing. Of course, it is possible to change the country of residence, but obtaining re-protection depends on the policy of each country separately. 


Poland, Switzerland, and the Czech Republic may refuse to grant re-protection. However, some countries have no problem re-granting the right of Ukrainians to live in them and receive all the benefits provided by temporary protection.


Which countries will grant repeated temporary protection in 2024?


Germany


If you decide to obtain temporary protection status in Germany, you should keep in mind that not all federal states of Germany currently accept refugees from Ukraine. For a list of states and addresses of camps that currently accept Ukrainians, please follow the link.


In order to apply for a temporary residence permit "Aufenthaltstitel", you need to apply for a simplified procedure for obtaining a relevant temporary protection, residence and employment permit at the nearest Ausländerbehörde migration service office.


Gather all the necessary documents (passport or birth certificate for children, residence permit or address of your temporary residence in Germany), visit the BAMF office and go through the biometric registration procedure in a first-come, first-served manner. Upon completion of the procedure, you will be issued a residence permit in Germany.


Slovakia


You can apply for temporary asylum in the Slovak Republic even if you have already been granted temporary asylum in another EU country. 


When you are granted temporary asylum in Slovakia, your temporary asylum from the previous country will be considered invalid. However, if possible, you should apply for cancellation of temporary asylum in your previous country yourself.


The Netherlands


It is also possible to re-apply for temporary protection (RTB) in the Netherlands. RTB means that you can stay in the Netherlands for a certain period of time and are entitled to certain benefits, such as asylum, healthcare and the right to work.  Minor children are also entitled to education. The RTB is valid until March 4, 2025.


Please note! The RTB is valid until March 4, 2025. However, if a person returns to Ukraine, he/she loses his/her registration in the Personal Records Database (BRP) in the Netherlands.

Spain


It is possible to obtain repeated temporary protection in Spain, but you cannot choose a city for residence, it is assigned randomly. To obtain temporary protection, you must apply at the CREADE Centers in Madrid, Barcelona, Málaga or Alicante. 


To apply, you must have a biometric passport for traveling abroad and a child's birth certificate if the protection is being applied for for a child. A residence address in Spain is also required. Spain provides temporary protection until March 2025.


Portugal


Portugal also continues to accept Ukrainian refugees, even if they have already been granted temporary protection in other countries. In this country, temporary protection is issued for one year, but it is possible to extend it twice, for a period of six months. 


Please note! To obtain temporary protection in Portugal, you must have proof that you have refused protection in another country. 


Thus, when a request is received, the Foreigners and Borders Service (SEF) reviews the relevant databases and subsequently transmits the applicant's data to the organizations responsible for the automatic assignment of a tax identification number, social security and healthcare.


After registration, a confirmation of acceptance and confirmation of the application for temporary protection is issued and a residence permit for a period of one year is issued.


Croatia


Croatia also grants asylum to Ukrainians after they refuse it in another country. In this case, a person can apply electronically on the website or in paper form at the nearest police station.
