The German Foreign Ministry said that they are going to start the process of transferring Afghanistani people who are at risk and whose lives are threatened by extremist and fundamentalist groups to Germany soon.
The ministry added that due to the abuses that occurred in this institution, this process was stopped for a while, but the German government will resume it and transfer 1000 Afghanistanis to Germany every month.
The German Foreign Ministry added that a number of these people have reached a third country, but they still claim that they should be transferred from there due to the threats made by the Taliban and other Takfiri groups. The ministry confirmed that these people are not at all included in admission and transfer.
Also, those who are not in the first-degree family of a person at risk are not included in the list of transferors, and the German government will not relocate them from Afghanistan.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Germany emphasised that people who have worked in human rights, the judiciary, the media, and civil activities are included in the transfer. In addition, people who are at risk due to their sexual orientation, gender, or religious beliefs can also benefit from the new admissions programme.
The new programme for the admission of vulnerable Afghanistani citizens was announced in November by Nancy Fizer, the Minister of the Interior, and Annalena Baerbock, the German Minister of Foreign Affairs. It was decided to transfer up to 1,000 vulnerable Afghanistani citizens to Germany every month. This protection programme is supposed to continue until 2025.
