KATHMANDU, August 16: The government has asked all Nepali nationals currently living in Afghanistan to come to the contact of the government.

Issuing a press statement on Sunday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs(MoFA) said it has started an online registration for the collection of the details of Nepali nationals currently living in Afghanistan. Those living in Afghanistan and wanting to return home can now register their name and provide other relevant details in the official website of the Department of Consular.

The Embassy of Nepal in New Delhi has already issued a travel advisory not to make any travel to Afghanistan as Taliban rebels have already captured  all major cities including capital city Kabul. The MoFA has asked manpower agencies sending Nepali nationals to Afghanistan for work to provide reliable data of Nepali nationals in Kabul to facilitate their safe return home.
