Officials in Kabul have announced that in-person passport distribution in Kabul will commence on January 10.

Abdul Karim Hasib, the head of the Passport Department, recently stated that the passport distribution process will begin soon.

According to him, this process will start in Kabul on January 10 and, if there is no excessive crowding, it will also begin in the provinces.

He has urged applicants to visit the Passport Department on Thursdays to register their applications so that the officials at the department can specify the starting date for each applicant.

Abdul Karim Hasib further emphasized that despite the distribution of hundreds of thousands of passports, many needy individuals still do not receive them due to excessive crowding.

He explained, “Over the past year, we have distributed hundreds of thousands of passports, but there are still individuals in urgent need of passports who have not received them. The reason is that some families have obtained 20 passports online and collect them according to their appointment dates, while others in immediate need of passports are unable to get them because their turn has not come.”

Since the Taliban assumed control of Afghanistan, there has been a significant surge in the demand for passports. This uptick is primarily driven by people seeking better opportunities and access to medical treatment abroad, given the dire humanitarian crisis gripping the country.

Among the factors fueling this increased demand is the Taliban’s ban on girls’ education beyond the sixth grade and their prohibition on Afghan women and girls from attending universities.

These restrictive measures have compelled numerous families to consider leaving Afghanistan in pursuit of educational opportunities and a more inclusive environment for women and girls.

The restrictions on education have underscored the challenges faced by Afghan families who aspire to provide a better future for their children, including access to higher education.
