UK government allows girls from Afghan Women’s Development Team to move to UK

The UK government has approved visas for the girls of the Afghan Women’s Development Team to settle in the country.

The girls on the team fled Afghanistan after the Taliban returned to power in August.

They went to Pakistan, but their temporary visas were about to expire, raising the prospect that they must return to Afghanistan.

However, the British government intervened to grant them visas to settle in the country.

A government spokesperson said: “We are working to finalize visas for the Afghan Women’s Development Team and look forward to welcoming them to the UK shortly.

“The government is committed to doing everything in its power to support those who need it most, including vulnerable women and girls, and those at risk who have had to flee Afghanistan.

“The UK evacuation operation helped more than 15,000 people reach safety, including British nationals, locally employed Afghan staff and other vulnerable people.”
