Fact Sheet: DHS Efforts to Assist Ukrainian Nationals   [open pdf - 110KB]

From the Document: "Following Russia's unprovoked attack on Ukraine, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is providing support and humanitarian relief to Ukrainian nationals in need both in the United States and abroad. To protect Ukrainians residing in the U.S., the Secretary of Homeland Security designated Ukraine for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for 18 months. This will allow Ukrainians here since March 1, 2022 to stay and apply for employment authorization in the U.S. To provide pathways to the United States for Ukrainians seeking refuge, DHS is working to expand current legal pathways and develop new programs in support of the Biden-Harris Administration's commitment to displaced Ukrainians. We are coordinating our efforts closely with our European allies and partners who are on the frontlines of this humanitarian crisis." This fact sheet covers legal pathways for eligible Ukrainians, TPS, asylum, the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program, humanitarian parole, and special situations and expedited processing.
