Information on whether a male national of Afghanistan who is of conscription age may obtain a passport and travel abroad in 1992 [AFG11237]

The Second Secretary of the Embassy of Afghanistan in Washington, D.C. stated that it was not possible for a man of 18 years of age to obtain a passport to travel abroad before 1992 (15 July 1992). However, because of the rapid political developments which have brought to power two governments since January 1992, the source was unable to determine whether the current government of Afghanistan has changed the pre-1992 Afghan conscription law.
