Eurovision 2023 tickets available for displaced people from Ukraine

The BBC have made it clear on several occasions that they are hosting the Eurovision Song Contest 2023 on behalf of last year’s winning country. Now they are making certain tickets available to displaced people from Ukraine.

This is happening through a ballot for which the applications are now open, the EBU have announced:

This has been done to make sure that Ukrainians having to have fled their country are also able to attend and enjoy the Eurovision Song Contest being hosted in their name. Those on the Homes for Ukraine, Ukraine Extension Scheme, and Ukraine Family Scheme can apply.

Those wishing to come need to fill out this form, providing the following:

  • Their name
  • Email address
  • Which shows they wish to attend
  • A photo or scan of their biometric residence permit

Being the holder of a biometric residence permit is only necessary for the person applying for the tickets.

Succesful applicants will get an email from Ticketmaster after which they’ll be able to buy a maximum of two tickets (for the price of €20 per ticket). For the purchase a Ticketmaster account is needed, of which the EBU advises to create it beforehand.

Important to note is that travel and accomodation need to be arranged by the succesful applicants themselves. And also vital to know is when the deadline for the application is: the ballot will close on Thursday the 6th of April at 16:00 (UK time).

For more help with the whole process, hopefuls are being referred to the Government of the United Kingdom website:
