Following the 2021 fall of Kabul to the Taliban, Afghanistan's visa regime is unclear. The laws of the internationally-recognized former government, the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, required visas for all foreign nationals to visit Afghanistan. The only exemptions were travellers born in Afghanistan, born to Afghan parents or with parents born in Afghanistan.[1] Diplomatic missions of Afghanistan set up by the Islamic Republic have been instructed by the Taliban to continue their work,[2] and the Taliban government is accepting visas issued by these missions for entry into Afghanistan. Some missions have stopped issuing visas, while others have continued to issue them.[3][4]

In 2021, the Taliban abolished the visa regime for citizens of Tajikistan.[5]
