The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is advising against all travel to Afghanistan and urges all Norwegian citizens in Afghanistan to leave the country.

The decision to tighten the travel advice for Afghanistan was taken by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs today on the basis of the Ministry’s assessment that the overall security situation in the country has deteriorated.

This travel advice is a supplement to the pandemic-related global travel advice against non-essential travel to all countries outside the EU/EEA, Switzerland and the UK except for certain countries on the EU’s list of epidemiologically safe third countries.
