However, the situation is very complex and presents significant challenges, including how those who are eligible for resettlement in the UK can leave the country. This includes the eligible family members of those being resettled under the ACRS. For those evacuated from Afghanistan under the ACRS without their immediate family members, further information will be made available in due course about options for reuniting with them.</p><p>Those referred by UNHCR under the ACRS will have refugee status and will therefore be able to access the refugee family reunion route.</p><p>Those without refugee status wishing to bring family members would need to apply through the regular family visa route under Appendix FM of the Immigration Rules.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Continued Russian bombing ruins crops and damages transport routes, hindering Ukrainian grain from getting onto world food markets. Despite this, grain exports continue through Ukrainian defiance and international support. The Black Sea Grain Initiative has been a success with over 18 million tonnes of grain exported from Ukrainian ports since August. The UK works closely with the UN and like-minded partners to ensure the continued success and stability of the initiative. We call on all parties to cooperate to ensure that the potential of the initiative is maximised. We have also provided £10 million for equipment to move grain by rail to neighbouring countries.</p> more like this
