For a year, a dad who has been separated from his young children while living in Afghanistan claimed he had no idea when his family will be reunited.The father, whose passport is from the United Kingdom, claimed he was forced to stay in Afghanistan because the Taliban were in charge of the nation and he needed to protect his wife.With other family members, their three kids emigrated to the UK in 2021, where they spent a year living in a motel in Luton.
British citizens may submit an application for a spouse visa. When a bomb went out at Kabul Airport in August 2021, the kids—now ages nine, eleven, and thirteen—were separated from their parents.
Following the US withdrawal, when the Taliban retook control of the city, thousands of people, especially those with connections to US and British personnel, had gone there to try to fly out of the country.
The family had travelled to the airport together but became separated in the confusion that followed, but the Afghan kids were able to track down other family members and left their parents behind to travel to the UK that month.
The father, who had previously lived in Britain and already held a British passport, is not being named.To keep the family together, he claimed he would have thought about sending his kids back to Afghanistan, but he felt that their education in the UK was more crucial.
He announced, “The Afghan school is closed.”The father claimed that in order to secure a UK visa for his wife, it would be necessary for him to have a verified employment offer in the country or proof of income, neither of which could be obtained from Afghanistan.
