The Biden administration, as a result of the Russian attack on Ukraine, is now offering Ukrainians living in the United States temporary humanitarian protection from deportation. This temporary humanitarian protection allows Ukrainians currently in the United States an opportunity to apply for a special designation granting work permits and deportation protections. This will only apply to Ukrainians already in the United States. This new designation stands to benefit the roughly 30,000 Ukrainians currently in the United States on temporary student, tourist, or business visas which may lapse while fighting continues in Ukraine. Ukrainians in the United States without legal status may also qualify for protection.
