Did you flee Ukraine, but you're not a Ukrainian citizen? Under the remigration policy, the Dutch Repatriation and Departure Service (DT&V) can offer you assistance and financial support for return to your country of origin or a country outside the European Union. You can make use of this support if you meet the conditions and apply before 1 February 2023.

DT&V can offer you help in the following ways:
- Advice and information about repatriation and return.
- One-way airline ticket.
- Assistance during your departure from Schiphol Airport.
- Financial support, to be received at Schiphol Airport:
