"Zabihullah Mujahid," the spokesman and deputy minister of culture and information of the interim Taliban government, said about the validity of passports issued in the previous government: All identity cards and passports issued are valid.
In the future, passports and identity cards will be issued under the name "Islamic Emirate".
At present, all passports are issued under the title "Islamic Republic of Afghanistan", which according to Mujahid will be renamed.
However, after the Taliban took control of Kabul, the Afghan Passport Office remained closed despite promises made by the interim government.
Some citizens of Kabul criticized the continuation of the closure of the passport office and called for its reopening and reopening.
Although the passport office is closed, many Kabulis come here every day hoping it will reopen.
