Gen Sir John McColl said the UK was “not delivering” on a pledge to help Afghans under threat from the Taliban after working with the British.
The ex-Army boss said hundreds eligible to come to the UK were still in hiding.
The Ministry of Defence said more than 9,000 Afghans and their dependants had been relocated so far.
The Home Office previously said up to 20,000 Afghan nationals would be provided with a safe route to resettle in the UK.
