We continue to work including with international partners to relocate British nationals and eligible Afghans through third countries. We also provide as much information as we can through our Travel Advice. We have supported over 3,700 individuals to leave Afghanistan since the end of Operation PITTING. This includes over 1,200 British nationals and eligible dependants. Safe passage continues to be a priority in our engagement on Afghanistan, including with Taliban representatives.
