The government will open a safe and legal route to the UK, focusing on women, children, minorities and freedom fighters.

They will still be subjected to the same rigorous security checks as others resettled through the programs.

Resettlement Minister Victoria Atkins said: “We are committed to supporting all those we have evacuated from Afghanistan to successfully make their new lives.”

All resettled people in the program will be given indefinite leave to stay here and be allowed to work or study.

The UK has helped bring 15,000 people to safety after the fall of Afghanistan last summer – including women’s rights activists, journalists and prosecutors.
