Extension of temporary protection for Ukrainians in Portugal

In 2024, Portugal actively accepts Ukrainian refugees and provides them with social support. According to Eurostat, more than 60 thousand Ukrainians have already found refuge in the country, mainly in municipalities such as Lisbon, Cascais, Porto, Sintra and Albufeira.

Temporary protection in Portugal for displaced persons from Ukraine has been extended until December 31, 2024. According to the resolution of the Portuguese government, temporary protection for Ukrainians is extended automatically, which does not require additional bureaucratic actions.

The Embassy of Ukraine recommends that Ukrainian citizens with temporary protection status in Portugal carry this resolution of the Portuguese authorities along with certificates of residence permit. This will help to avoid possible problems when crossing the border and during your stay in the country.
