Afghanistan Visa

Hi all,

it’s been more than six weeks since I applied for a visa at the Afghan embassy in Berlin. My paperwork is all in order I’ve been told by the embassy staff; as far as they’re concerned I’m good to go.

They said the reason why I wasn’t given a visa yet was that they were still waiting for a response from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) in Kabul. Whatever the problem is, I’m still without a visa and I need to get to the bottom of this.

When I called the numbers I found on the MFA website I was told I had to show up in person to get an update on status of my application. Catch-22.

So if any of you have a contact at the MFA consular section and be willing to forward it to me via DM or email that would be much appreciated.

Thank you for your support.
