Humanitarian Assistance and Visa Information for Ukrainians who have Evacuated to Poland
The U.S. Embassy & Consulate in Poland has created websites with information for Ukrainians who have Evacuated to Poland. These websites will be updated with additional information as the situation develops and are available in English and Ukrainian. You can access these websites by clicking on the links below.
Our attorneys are continuing to monitor the situation and advise our clients about various options they may have for immigrating to the United States. Additionally, our attorneys are available to answer any questions you may have about the situation and options that may be available to you. Do not hesitate to contact our office at 203-425-8500.
Earlier this week, the United States Department of State (DOS) ordered the departure of most U.S. direct hire employees from Embassy Kyiv due to the continued threat of Russian military action. Prior to this, the DOS authorized the voluntary departure of U.S. direct hire employees and ordered the departure of eligible family members. The DOS has also suspended consular services (which include interview waiver services). Applicants for U.S. nonimmigrant visas may now apply in any country in which they are physically present and where there are appointments available. As each U.S. Embassy has specific application procedures, applicants should directly contact the US Embassy or Consulate where they wish to apply. Contact information for U.S. embassy and consulates is available at www.travel.state.gov.
If an applicant has an immigrant visa case currently pending with U.S. Embassy Kyiv and would like to transfer processing of an immigration case to another U.S. Embassy, they must contact the receiving U.S. Embassy in that country to authorize and initiate the transfer. The embassy will have a list of requirements which must be satisfied in order to begin the transfer process.
Our attorneys are available to answer questions about the situation and provide assistance.
