Do not travel

International flights have resumed to and from Kabul. Be aware that flights can be postponed or cancelled at short notice. From 10 July, all passengers travelling with Emirates from Afghanistan must carry a negative COVID-19 certificate issued by a local government approved laboratory to be accepted on the flight. Certificates must be issued no more than 96 hours before departure. Contact Emirates or your travel agent for further details. If you’re in Afghanistan despite our advice, be alert and follow the advice of local authorities. The serious and ongoing threats of kidnapping and the volatile security environment have not changed. We haven't changed our level of advice: Do not travel to Afghanistan due to the extremely dangerous security situation and the very high threat of terrorist attack.
