Under the third pathway of the Afghan Citizens Resettlement Scheme (ACRS), and in year one, the Government will consider eligible, at-risk Chevening alumni for resettlement, as well as eligible at-risk Gardaworld contractors and British Council contractors. The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office will be in touch with those eligible to support them through the next steps. We are not able to share further detail at this stage.
