The Government of Canada joined the United States and over 90 other countries calling on the Taliban to honour its assurances regarding the evacuation of foreign nationals and Afghans holding travel authorization.

“We are all committed to ensuring that our citizens, nationals and residents, employees, Afghans who have worked with us and those who are at risk can continue to travel freely to destinations outside Afghanistan,” a joint statement issued by Canada and over 90 other countries stated.

The statement further added “We have received assurances from the Taliban that all foreign nationals and any Afghan citizen with travel authorization from our countries will be allowed to proceed in a safe and orderly manner to points of departure and travel outside the country.”

“We will continue issuing travel documentation to designated Afghans, and we have the clear expectation of and commitment from the Taliban that they can travel to our respective countries,” the statement said, adding that we note the public statements of the Taliban confirming this understanding.
