On 29 December 2020, the Defence Secretary and Home Secretary announced the Afghan Relocations and Assistance Policy (ARAP). This is a new scheme that will offer relocation or other assistance to current and former Locally Employed Staff in Afghanistan to reflect the changing situation in Afghanistan.
The ARAP scheme launched on 1 April 2021 and will continue to remain open and operate indefinitely.
Under the ARAP scheme, any current or former Locally Employed Staff directly employed by HMG assessed to be at serious risk of threat to life will be eligible to apply for ARAP regardless of their employment status, rank or role, or length of time served.
If any current or former staff believe they now qualify or are at serious risk, they should apply by using the online application form. You will be eligible to apply from any country (including Afghanistan).
