Braverman’s Visit to Northamptonshire: No Plan to Allow Sudanese Civilians Enter the UK

During her visit to Northamptonshire, UK Home Secretary Suella Braverman made a statement that seemed to rule out the possibility of introducing safe and legal routes for refugees who are trying to escape the conflict in Sudan. Braverman confirmed that there are no plans to consider making provisions for civilians from the war-torn country to access Britain. Instead, she emphasized that the priority at present is to support British nationals and their dependents in their evacuation from Sudan.

Successful Evacuation Mission from Sudan

The British evacuation mission from Sudan has managed to safely rescue 301 people over four flights, while the military continues to race against time to rescue citizens as a fragile ceasefire holds. Another Royal Air Force (RAF) flight was preparing to depart the Wadi Saeedna airstrip near Khartoum on Wednesday afternoon, with a further three flights expected later in the day. Downing Street hopes to continue with flights throughout the week and does not anticipate the need to leave the airport anytime soon.

No Commitment to Safe and Legal Routes for Sudanese Refugees

When asked whether he would deport child refugees who arrive in the UK without authorisation under plans to “stop the boats”, UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak did not express support for allowing Sudanese refugees to enter the UK via safe and legal routes. Although he acknowledged the UK’s proud record of supporting asylum seekers, he did not commit to a new safe and legal route for those fleeing Sudan.

Uncertainty Looms for Thousands of British Nationals Remaining in Sudan

More than 2,000 British nationals have registered in Sudan under evacuation plans, but thousands more could still be in the country. Downing Street has said the operation in Khartoum is running smoothly, with no issues related to capacity or evacuation of the British nationals. However, the situation remains uncertain for those still in Sudan, as the ceasefire is fragile and there are concerns about potential violence in the future.

The UK Government’s Controversial Decision

Braverman’s statement seems to suggest that the UK government has no intention of providing any assistance to Sudanese refugees seeking to enter the country. This stance sets the UK apart from other nations, such as Germany and France, who have recently announced plans to take in thousands of Afghan refugees following the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan. The UK government’s decision is likely to be controversial and has already faced criticism from some humanitarian organizations.


In conclusion, the UK Home Secretary’s statement appears to rule out any immediate plans to provide safe and legal routes for Sudanese refugees to enter the country. Instead, the UK government’s priority is to evacuate British nationals and their dependents from Sudan. As the situation in Sudan remains uncertain, it is unclear how the UK government will respond to the needs of Sudanese refugees in the future. The decision made by the UK government is likely to face scrutiny and debate as the humanitarian crisis in Sudan continues.
