What does the situation mean for Dutch nationals in Ukraine?

The situation in Ukraine is very unsafe and Ukrainian airspace is closed. Violence is widespread. If you are in Ukraine, leave the country if you can do so safely. If this is not possible, find a safe place to shelter. The Dutch authorities are not evacuating people. Let your loved ones know you are safe. Always follow the instructions of the local authorities.

Register with the information service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs

If you are currently in Ukraine, you should register with the information service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (in Dutch only). Choose the option ‘Aanmelden + registratie bij ambassade’ (which means ‘sign up and register with embassy’). This way, you can stay informed of all the latest developments, and the foreign ministry will know you are in the country. Please also deregister if you have left the country.
