Before you travel outside of the United States for any reason, you should always make sure that your required paperwork is in order to help avoid any unnecessary delays. Afghanistan is one of the many countries in the world that requires an Afghanistan visa for all United States citizens.
When filling out your Afghanistan visa application on the Internet, you will need to submit a few documents along with it to help aid in the approval process. In addition to your completed Afghan visa application form, you will also need to submit your original, signed United States passport. The passport will need to have at least six full months of remaining validity to work for this application.
You will also need to submit an official passport-style photograph and a copy of your itinerary. This can include a full itinerary or a copy of your round trip airline tickets.
You will also need to submit a personal letter that is addressed to the Embassy of Afghanistan, which will go into detail explaining the reason that you’re traveling into the country, how long you plan on staying, where you plan on visiting and more.
If you find that you need a new passport or need to renew your existing one prior to your Afghanistan trip, you can do so easily by using expedited passport services in your area.
