It is open to any person who was denied temporary protection to make a subsequent application if they feel that they are eligible under one of the qualifying criteria. Temporary Protection in Ireland applies to the following groups of people who have had to flee Ukraine due to the invasion by Russia:

a. Ukrainian nationals who were residing in Ukraine before 24 February 2022;

b. Nationals of a third country (other than Ukraine) or a stateless person who would have benefited from international protection (for example: Refugee status) or an equivalent national protection status in Ukraine and were residing there before 24 February 2022;

c. Family members of persons covered by a) and b), where their family already existed in Ukraine, prior to 24 February.

Family members include a spouse or partner, unmarried minor children of either of them, and their other close dependent family relatives who have been living with them as part of the family unit before 24 February 2022.

The person referred to by the Deputy can contact the dedicated Ukraine support team to discuss their case at:
