Afghanistan Evacuation Resource Guide

Resources for Americans and Afghans Seeking Exit from Afghanistan

The situation on the ground in Afghanistan changes by the hour. Although we are doing everything we can to support constituent inquiries, every case is unique and requires individual approval from the Department of State, for which we cannot mandate any decisions or outcomes. Our staff is working tirelessly to ensure that everyone who has legal status in the U.S. and who has or qualifies for a Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) can leave Afghanistan safely. Please be patient with us as we try to collect information from you to organize the best outcome possible.
