Uniting for Ukraine

For more information on Uniting for Ukraine, see the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Uniting for Ukraine information page (Yкраїнський переклад | Русский)

Uniting for Ukraine provides a pathway for Ukrainian citizens and their immediate family members who are outside the United States to come to the United States and stay temporarily in a two-year period of parole. Ukrainians participating in Uniting for Ukraine must have a supporter in the United States who agrees to provide them with financial support for the duration of their stay in the United States

The first step in the Uniting for Ukraine process is for the U.S.-based supporter to file a Form I-134, Declaration of Financial Support, with USCIS.

To assess the current health status of all newly-arriving refugees and to identify health problems, the Refugee Health Program operates through health care providers partners to provide initial health assessments to all newly-arriving refugees, including mental health screening.
