All 14 Afghan citizens evacuated from Kabul by Estonia with the help of allies have now arrived in Estonia. Last week, three families, a total of 13 people, arrived in Tallinn. 

The Police and Border Guard Board (PPA) is now carrying out the international protection procedure and will decide whether or not to grant protection.
