Getting a visa for Afghanistan used to be surprisingly easy, however now the situation is constantly changing.
Most Afghan Embassies and Consulates around the world are still controlled by the previous government, and therefore do not wish to support the new Taliban government. This means they won’t issue visas anymore.
Some diplomatic missions are controlled by the previous government but are issuing visas, while a very small number are now controlled by the Taliban and it’s back to business as usual, well, sort of.
The new government isn’t particularly sure how they want to deal with foreigners and therefore the requirements for getting a tourist visa for Afghanistan are a moving target.
Most recent reports suggest the easiest places to get a visa for Afghanistan are Dubai and Islamabad. Several diplomatic missions in Europe have now started issuing visas including Oslo, Madrid and Warsaw.
The documentation needed at the very least is a Letter of Invitation from a local inviting party, most commonly a tour company.
