German authorities are planning to cap the number of Afghan refugees who will be allowed entry into Germany to 5,000 per year.

German Interior Ministry is considering the move in order to keep the programme operationally feasible, German news magazine Der Spiegel said as reported by SchengenVisaInfo.com.

Over 18,800 Afghans entered Germany since the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) returned to power in August last year, according to Germany’s Interior Ministry.

However, more than 10,000 persons who have been granted admission by the German authorities continue to remain in the country, Info Migrants reported.

The acceptance rate has also fallen in other EU countries.

The European statistics provider, Eurostat, stated that the number of acceptances in the EU decreased by five per cent in 2021 compared to 2020.

According to Eurostat, nationals of Afghanistan remained the second main citizenship of first-time asylum applications for the third year in a row. They accounted for 16 per cent of the EU total, or 83,520.

This comes amid reports that German authorities are displacing existing Afghan refugees from accommodation centers in order to make way for those coming from Ukraine.
