Which agencies are eligible?
Authorised agencies are selected by the German Government. Agencies are suited to this task if they have special knowledge either of those eligible for admission or conditions in Afghanistan.
Civil-society organisations are especially suited to function as authorised agencies if they worked together with the Federal Foreign Office on the evacuations from Afghanistan in August 2021 or on the ongoing admissions from Afghanistan or received funding between 2013 and 2021 from the budget of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development to implement civil-society projects in Afghanistan.
On the part of the German Government, in special cases persons can be registered by the Federal Foreign Office, the Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development or the Federal Ministry of the Interior and Community.
