Information Regarding Support of Ukrainian Refugees

Missing Children Resources

Children who are displaced are more vulnerable to a multitude of dangers. Their lack of maturity and education, as well as vulnerabilities related to their ongoing physical and psychological development, predispose them to an increased risk of exploitation and to going missing prior to, during, and after their journeys. If you need more information on how to report a missing Ukrainian child, visit the resources below.

Official Government Websites For Refugee information in Major Destination Countries

The ongoing conflict in Ukraine has resulted in a mass migration in which more than 5.2 million people have fled the country and become refugees.  Another 7.1 million people have been internally displaced within Ukraine. The significant and traumatic impact on children cannot be overlooked. One out of every two children (nearly two-thirds of children) in Ukraine has been displaced from their homes.

While ICMEC cannot assist or advise such individuals directly, we have compiled a list of resources presented by various countries’ on their official government websites. These resources contain immigration information for Ukrainian citizens seeking visas or refugee status as well as Ukrainian diaspora aiming to bring family members to live with them outside of Ukraine.

This list is in alphabetical order. All websites are in English unless otherwise noted.
