Ukrainians fleeing the conflict with Russia can apply for a visa to stay in the UK under the Ukraine Family Scheme and Ukraine Sponsorship Scheme.
The Family Scheme allows Ukrainian nationals to stay with relatives already living in the UK, and the Sponsorship Scheme, also known as 'Homes for Ukraine' allows individuals to host refugees for a minimum of six months.
There has also been an increase in the number of visas issued, with 54 successful applications as of June 14, a rise on the 48 four weeks prior.
These numbers only cover a relatively small proportion of those who have arrived, as visas issued through the Scottish Government's "super sponsor" scheme do not show up in local authority figures.
