Travel to Afghanistan

ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)

The U.S. Department of State and other world governments strongly warn citizens against travel to Afghanistan.

There is an ongoing threat to kidnap and assassinate U.S. citizens and Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) workers throughout the country. The ability of Afghan authorities to maintain order and ensure the security of citizens and visitors is limited.

Remnants of the former Taliban regime and the terrorist al-Qaida network, and other groups hostile to the government, remain active, as U.S.-led military operations continue in this war-torn country.
