you may have wanted to start planning before you only had 3 months left. they would have to apply for a visitor visa ... the success of that happening is anyone's guess! sorry :sad:

i am not sure how things work through afghanistan - however, through pakistan the typical process is to file for a visit visa through the city you are in - for example in karachi or lahore, you can fill out the required paperwork and what not and file through the american express office - and then they will call you in for an interview to islamabad.......you go there and they will determine whether or not you get a visa. potentially, there is a similar process in place.

as a us citizen, you can surely contact the us embassy in afghanistan and ask them what the proper procedures are......here is some additional information from the us embassies page in afghanistan:

Visa Services

Welcome to the Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy Kabul. There is no U.S. visa processing facility in Afghanistan at this time.

The designated visa issuing post for Afghanistan is the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad, Pakistan.

U.S. Embassy in Pakistan

Diplomatic Enclave, Ramna 5, Islamabad

Tel: +92-51-208-2700 or +92-51-208-2121

Email: paknivinfo@state.gov

Public Inquiry Hours: 1-5PM, Monday-Friday

http://usembassy.state.gov/pakistan/consular.html

Note: The U.S. Embassy in Pakistan does not require Afghan nationals, or other nationals living in Afghanistan, to make an appointment for a nonimmigrant visa interview. Afghans may pay the application fee at a designated fee payment office (refer to "fee payment" in menu on left), and, with the receipt, proceed directly to the Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy before 11AM for an interview on any working day, Monday – Friday.

for some more information, refer to:

They need to go to the appropritae consulate, not embassy. The Visa type is B2.

There chances of obtaining one are very much down to their own individual circumstances, obviously starting with a minus because of the countries concerned.

Applicants resident in Afghanistan

Currently applicants resident in Afghanistan must be interviewed at the US Embassy in Islamabad. These applicants are not required to schedule an appointment through American Express but must pay the $100 application fee at American Express prior to their interview. Applicants resident in Afghanistan must bring their application and fee receipt to the Embassy prior to 11 AM on any working day.

Note: Afghans living in Pakistan are not exempt from the appointment requirement and must follow the procedure for all applicants resident in Pakistan.

tom&tata,

One doesn't have to " "hold back" in that area" to hold back in the related area.
