➔ Immigration measures for people affected by the situation in Ukraine (#220)

Quoted from the Government of Ireland's Website -- See link for source. "The European Union has put in place a temporary protection Directive to allow Ukrainian citizens and others fleeing Ukraine to move through the EU as EU citizens. If you are a Ukrainian citizen or if you are fleeing Ukraine and are covered by the Directive, the Government of Ireland will provide support and services to assist you as you establish yourself in Ireland. You can find information below on what income supports you can get while you are in Ireland and how to get these supports and services. We are here to help and support you during your time here." Please see this link for information in Ukrainian: https://www.gov.ie/en/publication/0d610-social-welfare-supports-ukraine/ And Russian: https://www.gov.ie/en/publication/57d0d-social-welfare-supports-ukraine/

➔ Immigration and social services for Ukrainians arriving in Ireland (#221)

Information pertaining to refugees arriving in Ireland and how they might navigate obtaining accommodation, access to health care, social welfare, work, and education. Upon arrival at Dublin Airport there will be services to help refugees source accommodation and assistance if required. If already in Ireland, you can email the International Protection Accommodation Service (IPAS) at ipasinbox@equality.gov.ie. Access to health care will be provided as if you are an Irish citizen. The Health Service Executive (HSE) is Ireland's medical service. You will need to apply for a medical card. Interpreters will be available if required. English-Ukrainian and English-Russian guides for refugees are available on the website. Social Welfare is available for refugees. They must apply for a PPS number (Irish social security number) but assistance will be available at Dublin Airport or, see information in English, Ukrainian and Russian websites as linked on the page. You will be able to work once you have official status under the Temporary Protection under the EU Directive. That is both as an employee and self-employed.
