The Home Office now routinely publishes data on Ukrainians arriving in the United Kingdom under our two new schemes.

Between 11 and 18 April, the number of those arriving under the Homes for Ukraine Scheme more than doubled from 3,200 to 6,600.

15,000 more Ukranians have arrived under the Family Scheme; meaning that as of 18 April, 21,600 visa holders had arrived in the UK.

We continue to work at pace to ensure more people can arrive more quickly.
