Since April 2021, the UK has disbursed over £600 million in aid to Afghanistan. This includes £17 million to support humanitarian organisations in Afghanistan's neighbouring countries. This has assisted Afghan migrants and asylum seekers moving across borders, and refugee and host communities in those countries.

We continue to monitor the situation. For those Afghan nationals eligible under ARAP (Afghan Relocations and Assistance Policy) and ACRS (Afghan Citizens Resettlement Scheme) Pathway 3, the UK Government continues to provide discretionary support to those in Iran, Pakistan, and other third countries - this includes accommodation, food and medical care.
