IRAP advocates for better protection for Afghans, including Afghans who worked for the U.S. government. IRAP is not a part of the U.S. government. Decisions about granting visas and who is eligible for a visa are made by the U.S. government.
The U.S. government has ended its withdrawal. At this point, we are not aware of avenues for evacuation. IRAP does not know whether or how the U.S. government will process immigration applications for people in Afghanistan.
We recommend checking the US Embassy Kabul's website for updates.
Travel to other countries
This page provides information about refugee status in countries around Afghanistan. IRAP cannot advise on whether to leave Afghanistan, how to leave Afghanistan, or where to go.
Legal Information and Resources
For information on immigration pathways that individuals may be eligible for, please visit IRAP’s Legal Information Website and review this page of Legal Resources for Afghans.
We have resources and information about seeking refugee status outside of Afghanistan on our webpage here. People who are applying for visas to the U.S. can continue applications from most countries with a US embassy.
