Information for Ukrainian Nationals
Ukrainians Present in the United States Since March 1, 2022
The Department of Homeland Security announced that Ukrainian nationals in the U.S. since March 1, 2022, may remain here for 18 months under Temporary Protected Status (TPS).
The government will soon publish details in the Federal Register, after which people may apply. TPS may be granted to nationals of a country when conditions in the country fall into one or more of the three statutory bases for designation: ongoing armed conflict, environmental disasters, or extraordinary and temporary conditions.
Contact Deutsch, Killea and Eapen, Immigration Law Firm, for assistance with TPS.
Ukrainians outside the United States, the State Department has published “Information for Nationals of Ukraine” here. This memorandum lays out the different types of visas available to Ukrainians outside the U.S., including “refugee” options. Due to an expected flood of applications, long case durations are anticipated.
