Fleeing Ukraine: Travel inside the EU

This information is also available in: Ukrainian | українська | Russian | русский

What you need to know when you travel in the EU

In most cases, if you have fled the war in Ukraine you will be able to travel to other EU countries. For Ukrainians with a biometric passport this right comes from the visa free regime in place between the EU and Ukraine. If you come from a third country, you need to check whether your country of origin is on the list of third countries whose nationals are exempt from the requirement to have a visa.
