A senior official said Afghanistan would resume issuing passports to its citizens after a delay of several months.
Alam Gul Haqqani, executive chairman of the Passport Office, told reporters in Kabul that they were issuing 5,000 to 6,000 passports a day and that women would be employed to process the documents of female citizens.
Many Afghans, including those trying to leave the country, were affected by delays in issuing passports. The process began slowly before the Taliban took control of the country in August.
