The Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs’ advice against all travel

The Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs has advised against all travel to Afghanistan since 2006. Since August 2021 are all Swedes advised to leave the country. This advice remains in place.

Swedes who despite the current travel advice are in Afghanistan are urged to keep up to date with developments about the security situation. Swedes who wish to leave the country must make their own assessment of the security situation and their possibilities to leave.
