Welcome to Our Expat Community in Afghanistan!

As-salaamu' alaykum! InterNations welcomes you to our expat network in Afghanistan. Landlocked in central Asia and separated into three distinct regions by the Hindu Kush mountain range, Afghanistan can be a challenging destination for new expats. The country’s location at a crucial juncture between east and west has ensured it has seen more than its fair share of conflict over the centuries but look beyond recent troubles and you’ll find a wild and untouched land of jagged peaks and fertile valleys. For expatriates Afghanistan can be an overwhelming place to move to. That’s where InterNations can help. Our community can help answer questions such as, “where is the most secure area to live?”, “do I need a work permit?”, “what health facilities are present?” or anything else that you need to know.

With InterNations, you never stand alone. Whether you are moving to another country or going on a business trip somewhere — our communities around the world are there to make you feel at home wherever you are. Feel free to check out our vibrant InterNations Communities in countries like Bahrain or Japan.

Begin Your New Life as an Expat in Afghanistan

Look past the recent conflicts that have engulfed Afghanistan and you’ll see a land rich in culture, steeped in history and filled with some of the most welcoming people on the planet. Three decades of fighting has left much of the country worse for wear and many expats head to Afghanistan to assist with the rebuilding of this proud nation through infrastructure creation. There has also been much urban development in the capital city of Kabul as well as Kandahar and Herat. It may be a challenging place to live from time to time but it is also filled with great opportunities for expats.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Panama or Netherlands, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.
