Protection status S for refugees from war
Switzerland helps persons in need of protection who have fled Ukraine - with protection status S (no quota).
All questions regarding protection status S can be found on the website of the SEM Swiss Migration Secretariat (also in Ukrainian).
We would like to point out that the information that refugees with protection status S receive a monthly payment of CHF 1,600 in Switzerland is a false report. Switzerland treats persons in need of protection similarly to other Schengen countries.
