For all non UN organizations or private entities that have an office in Kabul, they need to communicate the impending visa requirements of their staff that are based in UAE to the Directorate of Consular Affairs at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Kabul. The Directorate will then provide us the relevant clearance to issue the visa.
