Ukraine Relief from the United States

Ukraine to the US Refugee

Under a sort of humanitarian aid, the Department of Homeland Security will enable Ukrainians in the United States to remain in the nation.

People who would face extreme hardship if forced to return to homelands devastated by armed conflict or natural disasters are eligible for the relief, which is known as Temporary Protected Status. However, the protections are only available to those who are already in the United States. The Secretary of Homeland Security has the authority to designate a nation for TPS.

“Russia’s premeditated and unprovoked attack on Ukraine has resulted in an ongoing war, senseless violence, and Ukrainians forced to seek refuge in other countries,” DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said. “In these extraordinary times, we will continue to offer our support and protection to Ukrainian nationals in the United States.”

Ukraine joins a group of 12 nations that have been granted TPS, including South Sudan and Venezuela.

How Many Ukrainians Can Stay in the US for TPS?

According to a DHS official, some 75,100 persons are expected to be eligible to apply for TPS under Ukraine’s classification, which is more than twice prior predictions. To be eligible, individuals must have lived in the United States continuously since March 1, and the TPS designation will last for 18 months.


According to the Migration Policy Institute, a non-partisan research group, this protected status might assist 30,000 Ukrainians on visas. Visas are only valid for a certain amount of time, therefore extending TPS to Ukrainians on visas would protect them from deportation after their visas expired.

Can Ukrainians Come to the United States?

As of right now, there are no new streams or relief for Ukrainians escaping Ukraine to the US but this doesn’t mean we can’t help! There are still many streams that someone from Ukraine may be eligible for. Contact us today to discuss your options to help you immigrate from Ukraine to the US.

How to Help Ukrainians From the US

The US government has not announced that they are providing any funds to Ukraine for relief or support yet but there are many private donation options and non-profits that are raising money for Ukraine.

Where to Donate for Ukraine Relief

Airbnb: The vacation rental firm said that it will provide up to 100,000 Ukrainian refugees with short-term lodging. The company and donations to the Host Refugee will cover the costs of the stays. People are asked not merely to provide money, but also to welcome vulnerable migrants into their homes.

Ukraine Red Cross: All funds will be used to help those in need, affected by armed conflict, blood collection, mobilization of volunteers and resources, and emergency activities.

CARE: The international humanitarian group is providing food, water, and other items to families fleeing violence in Ukraine.’

Doctors Without Borders: Staffers with the medical relief organization remain in Ukraine and are “seeking ways to respond to the medical and humanitarian needs as the conflict evolves.”

I got my US L1 Visa through them, pretty smooth process. We weren’t sure they’d take our case as we had some issues with retrieving some documents, but they worked with us on getting everything we needed. Recommend.

Allow me to express that our case proved to be more complex than initially anticipated. However, Aisha and Reena provided unwavering support throughout the entire process. At each juncture, they offered clear guidance on necessary actions, guiding us through the intricacies we couldn’t navigate independently. While the procedure proved more intricate than expected, our legal team maintained close communication, ensuring we were well-informed and adequately prepared. Confronted with challenges, they approached them with a positive attitude, instilling confidence through their professionalism and competence. I wholeheartedly recommend their services. While moments of stress were inevitable, their assurance and ability to convey that confidence were instrumental. Reflecting on the experience, I am certain we would not have succeeded without their assistance, or at the very least, the journey would have been significantly prolonged.
