Expiration of the Temporary Protection Directive for third country nationals from the Ukraine

 On 27 June 2023, the Ministry of Justice and Security informed third-country nationals by letter that the Temporary Protection Directive would be ending.

The letter informs third-country nationals they will no longer qualify for temporary protection in the Netherlands as of 4 September 2023. The State Secretary for Justice and Security decided to extend temporary protection under the Temporary Protection Directive for third-country nationals from Ukraine, until the Council of State issues its decision in appeal proceedings. This decision will provide guidance on whether temporary protection for this group may be ended.
