Update on Afghanistan
The Department of International Relations and Cooperation has confirmed that there is only one (1) registered South African national remaining in Kabul. Thirty-five (35) South African nationals have been assisted to leave Kabul on various evacuation flights.
The one remaining South African is working in Kabul and will remain there for the foreseeable future.
It should be noted that there could be other South Africans remaining in Afghanistan but these would be individuals who have not registered their presence with the South African High Commission in Islamabad (Pakistan) or with DIRCO HQ in Pretoria.
