Advice

πŸ›‘οΈ Travel safety

Do not travel

If you want to leave Afghanistan, visit the website of the Australian Embassy in Kabul (afghanistan.embassy.gov.au/kbul/Covid-19.html) and follow their social media for updates on possible non-scheduled commercial flights. Kabul is currently in lockdown. If you’re in Afghanistan despite our advice, be alert, follow the advice of local authorities and minimise your risk of exposure to COVID-19. 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.
