In the past three weeks (since February 24, 2022), approximately 3.5 million people have left Ukraine due to the Ukraine / Russia crisis, and many experts believe that number will continue to climb.  Among the issues employers need to address is support for employees trying to leave the country as well as resources for those that remain.  Mayer Brown’s Ukraine Crisis: Movement Options for People Departing Ukraine is an interactive resource for up-to-date information on the international community’s response to the movement of people from Ukraine.

This resource provides a summary of the policies and requirements for Ukrainian nationals to enter other countries, including special programs set up in the wake of the crisis.  For many countries, the resource also includes links to the latest official government information.  It will be updated as new information becomes available, so please check back regularly.

For more information about the topics raised in this guide, please contact Elizabeth (Liz) Espín Stern, Carl Risch, Morgan Bailey, James Perrott,  (Asia) and Jad Taha (Middle East).
