07.09.2021: Information for Swiss nationals and foreign nationals with a valid residence permit in Switzerland who are still in Afghanistan

Switzerland temporarily closed its representation in Kabul on Sunday, 15.8.2021 and withdrew its staff in view of the current developments.

The Swiss Embassy in Islamabad is working to identify possibilities for Swiss nationals and foreign persons with a valid residence permit in Switzerland to show interested and eligible persons valid possibilities to leave the country.

Any relocation from Kabul is to be carried out by own means and on own responsibility. Checkpoints on the roads and identity checks must be expected.

Swiss citizens and persons with a valid residence permit in Switzerland should contact the Swiss Embassy in Islamabad with any questions or if they need help: islamabad@eda.admin.ch
