Germany: Federal government plans to take in hundreds more Afghans

Berlin - The outgoing federal government wants to bring hundreds more Afghan workers, people in need of protection and their nuclear families to Germany in the next two months. Around 200 people are expected to come to the Federal Republic of Germany via Pakistan every week, reported Der Spiegel, citing an internal announcement by the Federal Ministry of the Interior to the authorities involved.

The people to be resettled would be on a list for local staff or a so-called human rights list of the Federal Foreign Office, on which thousands of people in particular need of protection should be noted. These are therefore Afghans who have campaigned for democracy in their country and are linked to a German organization. Helpers from German media organizations should also be included.

Anyone on one of the lists can get a residence permit in Germany that is valid for up to three years. A security check takes place before entry.

Afghans who have been deported are also returning
Because of the chaotic situation on site after the Taliban came to power, more than 5,000 people were brought to Germany in August without a corresponding check. These included Afghan criminals who had already been deported and who were thus able to re-enter.

According to Der Spiegel, confidential documents from the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees show that around half of the 2,804 people included in them had not been accepted. You were now going through an asylum procedure in Germany.

The advance of the Taliban after the withdrawal of western troops had resulted in a confusing situation in the country. The chaotic evacuation of the German embassy caused massive criticism of Federal Foreign Minister Heiko Maas (SPD). Security authorities fear that the Afghanistan crisis will also increase the threat of terrorism in Germany.
