Resources for Afghans

AMERA, PILnet, the Asia Pacific Refugee Rights Network (APRRN), and the  Asia Pacific Network of Refugees (APNOR) are pleased to launch a series of legal information sheets in English and Dari for Afghans seeking legal assistance in or relocation to a number of countries.

Each legal information sheet provides a list of legal options available to Afghans already in the country; to those with family members in the country; and to those wishing to relocate due to risk of harm; as well as a list of organizations providing free legal assistance and other useful resources.

Please note that AMERA, PILnet, APNOR, and APRRN are unable to provide direct legal assistance or referrals. Please see below for alternative resources and support.
