Pakistan embassy in Kabul closes visa section

Kabul (Web Desk): Pakistan’s embassy in Kabul said it was indefinitely closing its consular office in the Afghan capital due to security reasons.


Closure of the visa section will come as a huge blow for many Afghans, hundreds of whom apply daily for permits to travel to Pakistan where they seek medical treatment, goods and university educations.

A message shared on WhatsApp by an embassy spokesperson said the consular section would be closed as of Monday “until further intimation”.

Last year, Pakistan’s Consulate in Jalalabad remained closed for several weeks due to security reasons.
