UNHCR Afghanistan - Help for refugees and asylum-seekers

Please remember that all UNHCR services are free of charge. UNHCR is aware of individuals fraudulently posing as UNHCR staff, including through fake Facebook accounts. UNHCR’s only methods of communication are the email addresses and phone numbers published on this site. If someone says they will give you assistance or help you depart Afghanistan if you pay them money, these individuals do not represent UNHCR.

Due to the current situation, UNHCR Afghanistan cannot accept walk-in counselling requests until further notice. You can reach us through our Protection hotline 📞 0791990225 ,📞 0790691746 and 📞 0704996168 (Toll free and available on all working days from 8:00am-4:00pm) or Protection email ([email protected]).  We will try to respond as quickly as possible but, due to the very large number of current requests and the impact of the security situation, it may take us some time to reply.
