Ukraine Family Scheme Visa Guidance Published

Apply for a Ukraine Family Scheme visa – GOV.UK (

The Home Office has published guidance on the Family Scheme Visa which is good news for some.

Eligible Ukrainian Nationals (plus immediate family members of Ukrainian nationals) will be able to apply to join UK based family members if those family members are British or settled, if they have pre-settled status, or if they have refugee or humanitarian protection in the UK.

This does not just apply to immediate family members of those UK based family members but also includes extended family members such as the parents of a child who is over 18, children over 18, grandparents, grandchildren and siblings.

The visa application process will be free of charge and will enable successful applicants to live in the UK for up to 3 years.

Unfortunately the scheme is not helpful to the family members of people based in the UK on a temporary basis .

For more information on the scheme and how to make an application please get in touch and we will try to help.
