The first group of 2,500 interpreters and their families evacuated from Afghanistan is expected to arrive in the US on Thursday, APA reports citing BBC.
They will stay at the Fort Lee Army Base near Washington DC to complete the Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) process.
The SIV programme is offered to those who worked with the US government or American-led military forces during the Afghanistan war, which began in 2001.
Threats against Afghans who helped the US have risen amid Taliban advances.
The Army will house the 2,500 Afghans at Fort Lee while they finish the vetting process, medical screening and other requirements for the visa.
The US state department had mistakenly told the BBC earlier that the plane had already landed.
