As of 31 January 2024, there are 1,992 ARAP-principal applicants that are awaiting a decision. Many of these are new applicants.

Each ARAP application is reviewed on a case-by-case basis and is honoured or scrutinised based on their own merits in line with the published ARAP policy. The Minstry of Defence is working diligently to identify every eligible principal applicant and provide a safe passage for them to relocate to the UK as quickly as possible.
