Since 24 February 2022, Ukrainians and Third Country Nationals (TCNs) have been fleeing from Ukraine to neighbouring and other European countries as a result of the war. From the beginning of the war in Ukraine until 20 December, a total 218,080 Ukrainian nationals were reported at entry through Latvia’s external (non-EU) borders by the Latvian Ministry of Interior, and 43,893 have been registered by Latvian Ministry of Interior (CAK - Civil Support Information Registry) for temporary protection. Also, a total of 34,840 are believed to be present in the country. This report is based on a survey on displacement patterns, needs and intentions launched by IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM). All interviews were conducted face-to-face by IOM’s DTM trained enumerators with adult refugees fleeing Ukraine. This report presents an analysis based on 997 surveys collected between 01 July to 02 December 2022. Data collection was made in 9 different cities; the majority of the surveys (74%) were collected in transit places of the capital Rīga (N=783), followed by Rēzekne (N=132), and Aluksne (N=34).
