On November 14, the United States Government rolled out a new webpage: a guide for Afghan refugees in the United States who are attempting to reunite with their families.

The webpage found at https://www.state.gov/afghanistan-family-reunification/, centralizes family reunification information with links to the appropriate forms and instructions for those Afghans living in the United States who would like to apply to bring their families from Afghanistan to the United States.

The United States withdrew its forces from Afghanistan in August 2021, and relocated many Afghans who supported the U.S. mission there, such as translators and former locally employed staff members at the U.S. Embassy in Kabul.

Due to the situation on the ground during the withdrawal, some Afghan families were separated. The United States is therefore committed to family reunification.

With the debut of the new, centralized web page; US citizens with family in Afghanistan, asylum seekers, and other Afghan nationals now living in the United States can easily find the information they need to facilitate bringing their loved ones to the United States. This includes information on eligibility, on the necessary documents depending on the status of the applicant, and computer links to the forms they will need.

Again, the new webpage can be found at https://www.state.gov/afghanistan-family-reunification/

The United States has an enduring commitment to the people of Afghanistan and is committed to providing individuals seeking to reunite with their family members with the information and tools they need.
