Assistance for AMCITs

Not every American citizen was able to get through the sea of humanity blocking the gate entrances to the Kabul airport. In the early morning hours of Tuesday, August 31st there were still hundreds of Americans trying to get onto the Kabul airport and catch a flight - many of them gathered in front of the airport entry gates that had been closed earlier. On this page are some resources for the American citizens who have been left behind.


What the AMCIT Should Do Immediately

1. Register with State Department. Any American citizens in Afghanistan should send name(s), location, phone number, passport number(s), passport data page picture, and details of others traveling in party (to include LPRs with Green Cards) to AfghanistanACS@state.gov immediately.

2. STEP. The passport holder(s) should then ensure they are registered in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) at https://step.state.gov.

3. AMCIT Repatriation Assistance Request. The Kabul Repatriation Assistance unit has published a site where an American citizen can request repatriation. Text if from the site:
"The U.S. Embassy in Kabul is collecting information from U.S. Citizens who may need assistance returning to the United States due to the security situation in Afghanistan. The information collected in this form will only be used by the U.S. government for the purpose of facilitating the return travel to the United States."
