SI also covers accommodation costs and travel expenses between the expatriate’s country of origin and the place of assignment.

LIVING CONDITIONS:

The security environment in Afghanistan remains tense, dynamic and volatile. While the risks associated with the conflict between the government and the armed opposition have significantly decreased since 15th of August 2022, third party armed groups (notably ISKP) continue to operate in certain provinces including Kabul and the possibility of the emergence of new opposition groups cannot be ignored. On the other hand, the country has always witnessed a certain level of criminality.

Living conditions are quite fair in Bamyan, with possible access to all essential goods and services. The security situation can be tense, and travel is sometimes restricted, but it is possible to have a social life.

APPLICATION PROCESS
