Online Visa Application Pilot Launch

Dear Visa Applicants,
With instructions from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Afghanistan, we are pleased to announce that we have launched a pilot project that allows applicants to apply for their visas via an online system.
We have worked for several months in partnership with Consulate Sys LLC to develop this system. The system launched on April 27, 2018 and will be in place for a trial period of four months.
After the trial period is completed, we will conduct an evaluation of the system, which will be submitted to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, who will then reach a decision on whether an online system meets our goals and objectives.
Our goal is to bring more transparency, efficiency, great speed, and more convenience to the way we issue visas. Our main goals are streamlined management of our visa process, and increasing convenience for visa applicants. 
Please keep the following in mind during this trial period:
  • We encourage you to use the online system to apply for your visa. You may do so by visiting this link:
  • However, use of the online system is optional. Please note that because the online system is in trial phase, we are still accepting in-person applications and issuing visas in person during regular working hours. For details please visit:
  • We value your feedback on the system.  If you have any queries or feedback, please email us at or call us at 855-234-8472.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we work to improve our visa services.
