Unfortunately, we are unable to break down ARAP figures by job role. It is also not possible to provide an accurate location for pending and ineligible applicants, as we rely on them to update us with their location should they choose to move.

However as of 6 February 2024, 15,300 ARAP eligible Afghans – principal applicants and their family members - are residing safely in the UK.
