Can I travel within the EU before receiving temporary protection?

If you have fled the war in Ukraine, you can travel to other EU countries. For Ukrainians, this right comes from the visa-free regime between the EU and Ukraine. If you come from a third country, you must check whether your country of origin is on the list of countries whose nationals are exempt from the visa requirement. 

Can I move between countries part of the Schengen area without internal border control?

Yes. Once you enter a country in this area, you can move, in principle, without border checks, to other countries in the Schengen area. However, you can only do so for 90 days within a 180-day period. 

Note that Iceland, Norway, Switzerland and Liechtenstein are not EU countries, but they are Schengen countries. You can travel to those countries once you have entered the Schengen area, but your international or temporary protection rights may differ from those you have in EU countries. While Denmark is an EU and a Schengen country, it does not take part in the temporary protection scheme and does not apply the EU rules on asylum. Therefore, your international or temporary protection rights in Denmark may differ from those in other EU countries.
