To minimise the risk to those leaving Afghanistan, the FCDO does not publish the details of specific routes. Since the end of Operation Pitting, in August 2021, the UK has helped over 4600 people to leave Afghanistan. The UK is working with international partners, including non-governmental organisations and other countries, to secure safe routes out of Afghanistan and to hold the Taliban to their commitment to allow safe passage.
