If you’re Ukrainian and do not have settled family in the UK, you can apply for a visa under the Ukraine Sponsorship Scheme (also known as Homes for Ukraine).
The Ukraine Sponsorship Scheme allows Ukrainian nationals and their family members to come to the UK if they have a named sponsor who is willing to provide them with a home.
It will enable individuals, charities, community groups and businesses to volunteer accommodation and provide a route to safety for Ukrainians, and their immediate family members, forced to escape their homeland.
