Protection under the Temporary Protection Directive
If you have fled from Ukraine, you can find information about the EU’s Temporary Protection Directive here. You can read about how to make an application, what happens after you have received a decision, and what your rights are then. You can find out about your rights to work, accommodation, health and medical care, and financial support.
For a year, there has been a digital introduction to society for those who have fled from Ukraine and have been given a residence permit under the Temporary Protection Directive. Now there is also an introduction for children.
Everyone who applies for protection under the Temporary Protection Directive is entitled to help with housing and financial assistance from the Swedish Migration Agency. To ensure that a person can only benefit from the right to financial assistance in one country, the EU countries have created a common database to share information about people who are granted residence permits under the Temporary Protection Directive.
