58 people from Afghanistan are still coming to the Netherlands

58 people from Afghanistan who have fled the Taliban are still coming to the Netherlands. It concerns guards, cooks and drivers, for example. They were due to come to the Netherlands in August, but they were unable to come to the airport in time.

Pakistan

The group fled to Pakistan, a country next to Afghanistan. Thats a very dangerous route. Thats why the Dutch government recommended waiting for them to be helped in a different way. They didnt. They have arrived in the capital Islamabad, and will soon be arriving by plane to the Netherlands.

The Afghanistan/Pakistan border is officially close to people who want to flee, but some people try to take the dangerous route. And because sometimes it works out, people keep trying.
