What should immigrants under the ” Ukraine Family Scheme” and ” Homes for Ukraine Scheme” do after they arrive in the UK?

After you receive a permission letter that you can come to the UK, you get on a plane or another type of transport and go to the UK.

At the UK border, on the basis of a previously received permission letter, you will receive a stamp in your passport for a period of six months.

After crossing the border of the country, you need to submit a new visa application for a biometric residence permit, which will eventually be issued for three years.

It is important to indicate that you need to submit such a visa application from inside the UK within six months from the date of entry into the country and receipt of a stamp in your passport.

Regarding the submission of a visa application under the “Ukraine Family Scheme”, the link to the application is given below – https://apply.visas-immigration.service.gov.uk/product/ukraine-scheme-brp?_ga=2.253858632.1779312889.1649667342-199880377.1626361932

Regarding the submission of a visa application according to the scheme “Homes for Ukraine”, the link to the application is given below – https://apply.visas-immigration.service.gov.uk/product/ukraine-scheme-brp?_ga=2.210811733.1779312889.1649667342-199880377.1626361932

After submitting this application under any of the above schemes, you will also need to submit your fingerprints (biometrics) at one of the visa centers within the UK.

After that, you will need to wait inside the UK for the period from one to two months until the UK Immigration Service reviews your application, makes a decision and issues you a biometric residence permit for a period of three years.
