Norway takes part in NATO's Resolute Support Mission (RSM) by training, advising and assisting afghan special police units in Kabul. However, stability, reconstruction and economic and social progress in Afghanistan cannot be achieved by military means alone. Norway has supported humanitarian aid and development in Afghanistan for the past thirty years. Afghanistan is one of the countries that receive the most development aid from Norway.
Norway has selected three main focus areas for its development aid to Afghanistan: good governance, education and rural development. Human rights, strengthening of women’s position and combating corruption are other focus areas. In addition, Norway has a broad humanitarian engagement in Afghanistan. Norwegian aid is channelled through the UN, the World Bank and Norwegian and international NGOs.
The Norwegian embassy in Kabul does not process visas. For visa inquires please contact the Norwegian embassy in Islamabad.
