The government of the Czech Republic recently extended temporary protection to Ukrainian nationals until April 2024.

Key Points:

  • Ukrainian nationals living in the Czech Republic can now extend their temporary protection until March 31, 2024.
  • To receive the extension, Ukrainian nationals must register electronically for temporary protection before the March 31 deadline. (Is there a website we can link to where they must register electronically?)
  • Once registered, individuals will receive an appointment date no later than Sept. 30, 2023, to receive their new visa sticker.
  • Ukrainian nationals who do not register or attend their scheduled appointment date will not receive the temporary protection extension.

BAL Analysis: Under the directive, temporary protections will cover Ukrainian nationals who fled the war in Ukraine for an extended period of time. Employers and employees are reminded that actions taken as a result of the invasion of Ukraine may change with little or no notice.
