Ukraine Relief from the United States

By Ella Bergquist March 7, 2022 (Updated March 7, 2022) 3 min. read
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’m satisfied with the expertise and professionalism with which my case was managed and handled. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the firm for its support. Although it has been a long process time due to Covid, Nadia has always been one of the first people to guide me step by step through the path during this stressful and unprecedented time. I strongly recommend VisaPlace to anyone seeking legal counsel.

I reached out to VisaPlace kind of on a whim, knowing that I needed to apply for permanent residency in order to stay with my spouse and our two cats. They were immediately and incredibly responsive, and almost instantly made me feel that I was dealing with professionals who cared about my case.

I reached out to them August last year, and today got the confirmation that my permanent residency has been approved. The people I worked with in VisaPlace stuck with me through the whole process, answering any questions and assuaging any fears that I had about the process, my application, or what I needed to do. Even when my anxiety made me snappy (I apologized immediately!) they handled my case and me with professionalism and compassion. Immigration is a stressful, scary process. I wanted professionals who knew the ins-and-outs so that I had the best chance of being able to come to Canada.

And now, I get to stay in Canada with my partner of nearly 10 years, and I couldn’t be happier. I would absolutely recommend this service to anyone who wants immigration help! A big thank you, especially, to Alejandra and Nadia for handling my case. I’m so lucky to have had your help!

Truly a very systematic, professional and pleasant team. My student file was with Gunjan and Yasmeen. They handled my case so well, always replied to all my queries and really did the best they can to keep me calm during the process. Yasmeen is truly very professional and completed my application in a timely and very organized manner. Would definitely recommend this organization to everyone.
