Ukraine Extension Scheme

The Ukraine Extension Scheme was introduced on the 3rd of May 2022.



This scheme allows Ukrainian individuals (and their qualifying family members) to live, work and study in the UK if they hold any UK visa (including a Visitor visa or Seasonal Worker visa) or held one that expired on or after 1st January 2022.

The scheme is free to apply to and visas will be granted for an initial period of 3 years. The Ukraine Extension Scheme does not currently lead to settlement in the UK. Those granted leave under the scheme will be able to work for any employer and will not be subject to minimum skills or salary thresholds.
