Special Protection Status
Today, the EU has decided to activate the Temporary Protection Directive to offer quick and effective assistance to people fleeing the war in Ukraine. Under this proposal, those fleeing the war will be granted temporary protection in the EU, meaning that they will be given a residence permit, and they will have access to education and to the labour market.
The Temporary Protection Directive will provide the following provisions:
– Providing immediate protection and rights: this includes residency rights, access to the labour market, access to housing, social welfare assistance, medical or other assistance, and means of subsistence.
– For unaccompanied children and teenagers, temporary protection confers right to legal guardianship and access to education.
– Reducing pressure on national asylum systems by creating a protection status with reduced formalities. This will avoid overwhelming national asylum systems and allow the Member States to manage arrivals in an orderly and effective way in full respect for fundamental rights and international obligations.
When more is clear on how the IND and other Dutch agencies will implement these measures, we will share this on our website and sociale media channels.
