Do not travel

The situation in Afghanistan remains highly volatile. There continues to be an ongoing and very high threat of terrorist attack throughout Afghanistan, including around airports and at land border crossings. We continue to advise against all travel to and within Afghanistan. Travel throughout Afghanistan is extremely dangerous. Violent incidents could occur across the country. Land borders may close to travellers seeking to cross from Afghanistan and border crossing points are at risk of terrorist attack. You need to carefully consider the risks should you attempt to leave by any route. The Australian Government can't offer advice on the safety of travelling to departure points. Any travel options you pursue are taken at your own risk. You’re responsible for your own safety and that of your family. Take all extra precautions for your safety. Stay in a safe place.

The Australian Government may not be notified about a detention, and our ability to access information about or assist a detainee is severely limited. Our ability to provide consular assistance to Australians in Afghanistan is severely limited.
