A person who has moved to Ireland after fleeing the war in Ukraine and who has been granted temporary protection is free to leave and re-enter the State. However, it is important to note that the temporary permission permission letter given to those who have arrived in Ireland from Ukraine is not a travel document. Before travelling to another country the person concerned should contact the immigration authorities of that country to find out about the requirements for entry.

If they are receiving a payment from the Department of Social Protection (DSP) they should inform them of their travel plans. The locations of Intreo (DSP) offices can be found at the following link:
