Thousands of Afghans have been trying to leave their country after the Taliban takeover.
And that's raising concerns about a mass of refugees trying to enter Europe and other countries.
The Taliban's leaders have promised amnesty to former Afghan army soldiers, as well as contractors and translators who worked for international forces.
Many are being evacuated by western capitals that are taking staff out of Afghanistan.
Some governments have offered resettlement plans to thousands of Afghan refugees.
But others are not willing to accept them.
They're concerned about a repetition of the 2015 refugee crisis.

So, what can be done to help those who've fled their homes?
