US and UAE – Special Status for Ukrainian Nationals

April 27, 2022 |

The United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has officially opened registration for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Ukrainian nationals, providing a crucial lifeline for those affected by recent events. Here’s what you need to know:

1. Eligibility Criteria for TPS in the United States

Ukrainian nationals seeking TPS must demonstrate continuous residence in the U.S. since April 11, 2022, and physical presence in the country since April 19, 2022. The registration window extends until October 19, 2023, but travelers arriving after April 11, 2022, are ineligible for TPS.

2. UAE Offers Residency Visa for Ukrainian Nationals

In a parallel effort to support Ukrainian nationals, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is providing an option for a one-year residency visa. To qualify for the residency permit, applicants must fulfill the following requirements:

  • – Entered the UAE before the onset of the conflict.
  • – Submitted a copy of their passport.
  • – Provided a recent medical report.
  • – Furnished a copy of a valid health insurance policy.
  • – Completed the Emirates ID application form.

Additionally, those who have been residing in the UAE for over a month are exempt from overstay fines, easing the transition for affected individuals.

Conclusion: Navigating Support Options for Ukrainian Nationals

These initiatives by the United States and the UAE aim to provide immediate relief and support to Ukrainian nationals affected by the current crisis. As the TPS registration period continues until October 2023, eligible individuals are encouraged to take advantage of these opportunities for stability and security in these uncertain times.
