The following table shows the number of deportation orders issued to Afghan nationals for the past five years. No deportation orders have been issued to Afghan nationals this year.

Furthermore, no existing deportation orders for Afghan nationals will be enforced in the current circumstances. For those with an existing deportation order, they can make a request to me to revoke the order and any such request will be prioritised.
