Australia Increases Their Commitment To Afghanistan
In today’s Blog update, we will talk about Australia increasing its commitment to Afghanistan.
The Australian Government will issue at least 15,000 places for Afghan citizens via their Humanitarian and Family Visa Program over four years
Alex Hawke the Minister for Immigration, Citizenship, Migrant Services and Multicultural Affairs said that this increased, multi-year commitment is an important one to meet their obligations and address the ongoing humanitarian situation in Afghanistan. It also pursues the initial allocation of 3,000 places in August 2021.
He further said that the War in Afghanistan was Australia’s most extended, and humanitarian intake of this size reflects this. His promise to Afghan refugees will be second only in ranking to humanitarian intake from Syria and Iraq.
Mr. Hawke added that the recent announcement of 15,000 places pursues the initial allocation of 3,000 places to Afghanistan in August 2021. The Government will continue to observe processing numbers and hold the right to increase the program in future years.
