What is the Temporary Protection Directive and its Activation?


On March 4, 2022, the European Union Member States collectively enacted Council Directive 2001/55/EC, addressing the urgent displacement resulting from Russia's military invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022. This directive allows for immediate temporary refuge within the European Union and the equitable sharing of responsibilities for those fleeing Ukraine.


🇪🇸 Rights Granted in Spain and Duration:


Temporary protection automatically grants displaced individuals the ability to reside, work, or study within the European Union for an initial period of one year, extendable up to a maximum of three years, without the need to seek asylum.


📋 Rights under Temporary Protection:


Residence permit

Work permit (self-employed and employed)

Access to social benefits (including accommodation, legal and psychological assistance, social support, language learning, etc.)

Access to healthcare

Access to education for minors under 18, under the same conditions as nationals.


🤝 Who Qualifies for Temporary Protection?


In Spain, the following groups are eligible:

  • Ukrainian nationals residing in Ukraine before February 24, 2022.

  • Stateless individuals and third-country nationals residing in Ukraine with a valid legal residence permit (permanent or another type, e.g., students, persons with refugee status, etc.), are unable to return to their country or region.

  • Ukrainian nationals staying in Spain before February 24, 2022, who cannot return to Ukraine due to the conflict.

  • Family members of individuals falling under the above categories.
