Ireland has, to date, offered over 500 Letters of Waiver in lieu of visas to enable those wishing to leave Afghanistan to exit the country. To date, 353 Afghans have arrived in Ireland. The current IRPP priority is to ensure the integration of new arrivals and to link these with accommodation and services.
Requests for further places in the IRPP programme will be considered as resources allow. The Department of Justice will launch the Afghan Admissions Programme in December to facilitate the arrival of 500 Afghans under Family Reunification.
