About the Temporary Protection for Ukrainian Citizens in Italy

Mar 14, 2022

On 4 March 2022, the European Council activated the Temporary Protection Directive, through the Decision 2022/382 of 4 March 2022. The system of temporary protection was considered more appropriate than an asylum status due to the extraordinary and exceptional situation. 

The EU and the Member States are working on this, yet we do not have a concrete answer to the case, as some technical (legal) fulfilments are still required.

The current situation is as follows:

  • Now Temporary Protection Directive is binding and shall be implemented to Member States’ national law.
  • The Member States shall act according to the provisions indicated in Decision 2022/382 of 4 March 2022 and the Temporary Protection Directive.
  • For Italy, we are expecting a Decree (DPCM) for the enactment of the above, which should include the internal standards in order to process the request for temporary protection for Ukrainian Citizens.
