Iran to accelerate issuing visa for Afghans

15 Aug 2022 - 18:49

Iran's Ambassador to Kabul confirmed the upcoming acceleration of visa issuance to Afghans, particularly migrant workers, the Afghan Foreign Ministry said.

Muttaqi also asked Iranian colleagues to help Afghan citizens with employment in Iran and ensure the accessibility of workers' trips to the country, according to the department.

The Taliban came to power in Afghanistan in August 2021, resulting in a deepening economic, humanitarian, and security crisis. Since then, a huge number of Afghans have been escaping from their homeland to neighboring countries, including Iran, in fear of joblessness, hunger, and the movement itself.
The Taliban initially called on the population to stay in Afghanistan and help rebuild the state. However, recently, the movement has expressed the belief that labor migration can help revive the national economy and improve the living conditions of the Afghan people.
