Temporary suspension of entry visas issuing



Temporary suspension of entry visas issuing

Following the terrorist attack of May 31 that hit the diplomatic district of Kabul and due to the deterioration of security situation in the capital, the Visa Office of the Embassy of Italy to Afghanistan has been temporarily closed. Consequently all scheduled appointments have been cancelled and no new appointments can be granted until further notice. In any case, the already submitted applications will be processed and delivered as soon as possible.

During the temporary suspension of the activities, according to the article 6.2 of the Regulation (EC) n. 810/2009 (Community Code on Visas), Afghan citizens may apply for visas at the Italian Embassies and Consulates in third countries where they are “legally present”.
