It has finally been confirmed that people granted permission to live in the UK under one of the three Ukraine Schemes (Homes for Ukraine, Ukraine Family Scheme, and Ukraine Extension Scheme) will be able to apply for further permission to live in the UK.

Unfortunately, this will only be for an additional 18 months (at this stage anyway) and does not provide for the permanent settlement that many had hoped for.

Applications will again be free of charge and it will be possible to apply within the last three months of existing permission to live in the UK.

Applications will open from early 2025.
