The U.S. Embassy in Afghanistan has received reports that international commercial flights are still operating from Kabul, but seats may not be available. The U.S. Embassy is exploring options for U.S. citizens who want to depart and who have not been able to find a seat on commercial flights.  This notice is to solicit information from U.S. citizens who may wish to utilize such a options.  If you have an existing flight booked, do not cancel that booking.  The Embassy cannot guarantee how many or if charter flights will be available and continues to urge all U.S. citizens in Afghanistan to take advantage of commercial flight options while they are still available as airports could experience unexpected closures with little to no warning.

To register for any option that might be identified to return to the United States, you must complete this Repatriation Assistance Request for each traveler in your group.  Spouses and minor children of US citizens in Afghanistan who are awaiting immigrant visas should also complete this form if they wish to depart Please do so as soon as possible.  You must complete this form even if you’ve previously submitted your information to the U.S. Embassy in Kabul.  Do not call the U.S. Embassy in Kabul for details or updates about the flight. This form is only way to communicate interest in flight options. If we are able to arrange a flight, we will contact those who have indicated interest with additional specific information and will provide general information via the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program.
