Dworczyk spoke about the current situation at the Kabul airport. “It’s getting more and more dangerous,” he emphasized.

As Dworczyk pointed out, in line with our declarations in this regard, we will also help European Union and NATO countries to evacuate people from Afghanistan. – Therefore, Afghan citizens will come to Poland, who will be able to stay here temporarily – up to three months, and then they will be transferred to the country of their destination, so the procedures will be completely different there – he explained.

He added that this is why their places of stay will not be limited only to the centers of the Office for Foreigners.
