WASHINGTON (Pajhwok): Citing continued instability and threats from terrorist organisations, the United States on Wednesday warned its citizens against travelling to Afghanistan.
In a travel advisory, the State Department travel to all areas of Afghanistan remained unsafe.Taliban, Islamic State and other armed opposition groups were active throughout the country, it said.
Due to security concerns, unofficial travel to Afghanistan by US government employees and their family members is restricted and requires prior approval from the Department of State.
Embassy personnel are restricted from traveling to all locations in Kabul except the embassy and other US government facilities unless there is a compelling government interest in permitting such travel that outweighs the risk.
