31,000 Ukrainians Receive Extended Protection in Sweden

Just over 31,000 people from Ukraine have so far received extended protection in Sweden in accordance with the mass refugee directive. According to the Swedish Migration Agency, almost everyone who has been tested has been granted an extended residence permit.

The period to apply for an extension was February 1 to March 4 this year. In January, nearly 39,000 people with protection under the mass migration directive were registered with the Swedish Migration Agency.

The EU’s mass displacement directive was activated on March 4 last year, after Russia attacked Ukraine. This means that Ukrainian refugees are offered immediate and time-limited protection within the EU.

Today, there are roughly 33,000 refugees from Ukraine with residence permits until March 4 next year in Sweden.
