Going to Afghanistan post-8/2021

Post by Victorze »

Perhaps we can make a thread to share reports/ see if its possible for tourists to go to Afghanistan post Taliban takeover. If you’ve gotten this far to the 2nd sentence, you probably understand the danger of: Taliban, land mines, daesh, mob mentality, and that for some reason doesn’t want to stop you.

Sorry for the vagueness, but I hope to update soon. I have a white Canadian friend who entered Afghanistan from Pakistan (land) late January 2022. He negotiated somehow a visa to Afghanistan, from what I believe would be the Peshawar consulate, since I don’t think he had luck in the Islamabad one. He is backpacking around, telling me he’s seen the minaret of Jam, Zaranj… etc.

I want to go to Afghanistan next year (2023), so maybe we can queue all the resources about it here :)

if you look in the Facebook group "Every Passport Stamp", a solo Swedish woman just did a ~10 day trip in Afghanistan. It required a stop in Pakistan to catch a daily Kam Air flight into Kabul. Don't want to start a convo on the ethics/etc. here, but I'm sure a handful more will make it over in the next few months now that she's proven for it to be reasonably safe and doable.

Not linking the post right now because not sure of the rules? But if it's OK I can link it...you need to be a member of the group to view the post.

Ibrahim (my Wahki Gide from 2018, see previous posts) says he has had a slight trickle of western tourists coming to the Afghan Wakhan, even one American scheduled. Tajik border remains closed so folks are coming via Kabul.

"guard of the foreign tourist, who was a Taliban member, opened fire in Dara-e Fuladi, near the center of Bamiyan". There's clearly way more to this story than that article shares. That article is 10 days ago, and I can't find any more information.
