Information on the number of visas granted under the Ukraine Family Scheme and Homes for Ukraine Scheme can be found in our published data on the GOV.UK webpage: Ukraine Schemes: application data - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk).

Information requested that is not contained within this published data is not routinely captured. To capture numbers would require a manual trawl of data and to do so would incur disproportionate cost

We have received thousands of applications submitted to one of the fastest and largest visa programmes in UK history.

We are processing applications as quickly as possible and extra caseworkers have been brought in to meet demand. The Home Office is continually making efforts to simplify the application process for Ukrainian refugees, and keeps this under regular review.
