Uniting for Ukraine is the United States Government program that allows Ukrainians seeking refuge to travel to the U.S. with the support of a sponsor.


Ukrainians and potential American sponsors can find each other, message back and forth, and make an informed decision about sponsorship.

After they connect on Welcome Connect, sponsors and Ukrainians can apply for the Uniting for Ukraine program together.

Are you a Ukrainian looking for a Sponsor for yourself, your family, or your group under the Uniting for Ukraine program?

Thank you for your interest in using Welcome Connect. We have had a very high number of interested Ukrainians. To ensure we have enough sponsors available, signup for Ukrainians will be continuous but limited. On the 15th of each month at 14:00 EET (Eastern European Standard Time), the registration page will open, allowing the first 500 Ukrainians who complete the form to register. After 500 new registrants, the registration page will then become unavailable again until the 15th day of the following month. Make sure to check the registration page for a chance to sign up on Welcome Connect.
