Afghanistan support

The UK evacuation operation in Afghanistan has ended. I realise that this will be distressing news, however, the UK is working urgently to evacuate remaining British nationals and those eligible for relocation. If you are a British national please register your presence on the Foreign Office website

Unfortunately, due to the complex and changing situation in Afghanistan, the Home Office is unable to assess individual cases of Afghan nationals that are passed to them by MPs. Instead you should apply directly to the Afghan citizens’ resettlement scheme. Further details will be announced as soon as possible.
