Current ISAF Embed Contact

I have a quick question for those who have recently embedded in Afghanistan.

I’m trying to get in contact with someone to answer a few simple questions about the required paperwork for an ISAF embed applicationm which is listed at this site.


I have got no reply from the provided email IJC.EMBEDS@afghan.swa.army.mil

Anyone know an alternate contact? Any help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks, I’ll give that a try.

Any other suggestions?

I’m having no luck with a few alternate emails, anyone have any advice on how I should proceed?

Anyone know of a specific person to get in touch with?

if you have simple questions about the embed paperwork, you might as well just post them on this thread. There are both embeds and PAOs onboard here.

Good point Teru,

Basically this is what I’m looking for answers to.

I want to confirm that I have the appropriate forms. Are the following 3 forms the only ones I need to fill out at this point?

1- ISAF Media Registration Form
2- Media Embed Form
3- ISAF Media Ground Rules and Hold Harmless Agreements

On the ISAF Media Registration Form it asks for the dates of my visit, since they have yet to be determined/approved by ISAF, should that section be left blank? Or should I provide my desired dates? On the ISAF Media Ground Rules and Hold Harmless Agreements, it has a section for dates and location of embed, should that also be left blank at this point?

Will any other documents or items be required with the application? I know, at least of a few years back, a letter from my editor, etc. was required, I don’t see that currently listed.

Sounds like you have the ISAF forms you need for them. Yes, you still need a letter of assignment, a copy of your Afghan visa and U.S. passport. Desired dates, location, unit, etc. works fine.

Thanks for the reply Bill, looks like I have everything in order then.

Would you suggest emailing the paperwork to IJC.EMBEDS@afghan.swa.army.mil even though they have not replied to me? Is there another option?

Thanks again for everyone’s help.
