As of 25 of April, there are 684 ARAP principals with confirmed eligibility for relocation to the UK who were in Afghanistan at the time of their application. It is not always possible to know whether all eligible personnel are still in the country as some have eligibility for resettlement to other allied countries and/or many have already travelled to a neighbouring country.
