    EXTREME TRAVEL RISK for Afghanistan

Risk Summary

The primary threat in Afghanistan stems from an ongoing insurgency. The south and east – particularly border areas with Pakistan – are the most volatile parts of the country, though the threat is nationwide. Government authority is limited outside the main urban centres, with the Taliban and warlords operating parallel governance and judicial structures throughout large parts of the country. The security situation is further complicated by ethnic and tribal divisions, corruption, and a narcotics industry that funds arms smuggling and terrorist activities.

This information is intended as a summary of the travel security environment; however, the risks can change at short notice during a crisis or evolving situation. Please monitor our alerts to ensure you are informed of the most recent developments.
