There are still thousands of American citizens trapped in Afghanistan.  Many of you are frustrated with the lack of forthcoming information from the State Department regarding your friends and loved ones. We are too. Staff is working hard to obtain information and push the State Department for action.  If you have a loved one that is trapped there, the best information we have is to do the following immediately: 

 

U.S. citizens needing assistance to depart Afghanistan should register for any option that might be identified to return to the United States by completing this Repatriation Assistance Request for each traveler in their group as soon as possible, to facilitate travel when the situation permits.  Spouses and minor children of U.S. citizens in Afghanistan who are awaiting immigrant visas should also complete this form if they wish to depart. Citizens must complete this form even if they’ve previously submitted their information to the U.S. Embassy in Kabul.

We are currently working with State to evacuate multiple individuals and are awaiting further guidance. The situation is fluid and we are working hard to obtain better information.  If you are a resident of TX-21 and you have a loved one that is trying to escape Kabul, please reach out to my office here.
