Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan said that people will not be allowed to travel abroad until the new cabinet is complete and Hamid Karzai International Airport is fully prepared.

Acting minister of information and culture and spokesperson of the Taliban Zabiullah Mujahid said that travelers have to wait until the ministries of interior and foreign affairs start operations.

As per the new directive, those who have all the legitimate documents will not be allowed either.

Earlier, the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan did not allow flights carrying Afghans and foreigners from the northern Mazar-e-sharif city of Balkh province.

The biggest airport of Afghanistan based in Kabul has resumed domestic flights and receiving aid but international flights are yet to be started.

The technical team of Qatar along with a 19-member team of Turkey is busy working in HKIA to make it ready for international flights.

US forces have inflicted up to $20 million in damage to the airport before their full withdrawal.
