Migrant Accommodation Centre (MAC) is a temporary stay point for foreigners and stateless persons that have no legal right to stay on the territory of Ukraine.

There are three such points in Ukraine – in the Rozsudiv village (Chernihiv region), in the Martynivske village (Mykolaiv region) and in the Zhuravychi village (Volyn region).

A person can be placed in MAC if:

  • The court made a decision on forced expulsion against such a person.
  • The court made a decision on the detention of such a person for the purpose of identification and enforcement of expulsion.
  • A person was detained by the representatives of the State Migration Service of Ukraine and has no documents that confirm the legal grounds to stay in Ukraine.
  • A person was detained by a court decision until the completion of an asylum application in Ukraine (refugee status or complementary protection).

If you are detained and you need the help of a lawyer, call the emergency hotline of the Right to Protection CF: 

+38 (093) 038 95 62

More useful information concerning the rights of refugees and persons in need of complementary protection can be found on the Facebook page of the Refugee Helper chatbot.
