The UK Government will consider at risk Chevening alumni, British Council and Gardaworld contractors for resettlement under the third pathway of the Afghan Citizens Resettlement Scheme in year one. We plan to exceed our initial aim to resettle 5,000 through ACRS in the first year. Overall the ACRS will provide up to 20,000 people with a safe and legal route to resettle in the UK.
