UIN 45299, tabled on 8 September 2021

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, whether British nationals and their families, who are non-British nationals, who have been evacuated from Afghanistan through third-party countries have been given a clear timeframe for when they will be repatriated to the UK.

The UK’s evacuation operation helped over 15,000 people to safety including British nationals, Afghan interpreters, and other vulnerable people. Whilst the success of that operation exceeded our assumptions, we know that there are many left in difficult circumstances. Colleagues in the UK and overseas continue to work urgently with international partners, including those in neighbouring countries, to secure safe routes as soon as they become available.
