Each visa application is considered individually and it may be necessary to present some additional documents or attend an interview. After receiving an information that your visa will be issued, you will be informed about the necessity to make payment. You should not make any payment before the decision is taken. If the visa fee is paid beforehand and a visa is not issued, there will be no possibility to receive the refund of the amount paid.
Those who apply for visa for the first time should submit the application form in person.
Those who have already applied for a visa to Afghanistan at the Afghan Embassy in Warsaw but cannot submit the application and other required documents in person, can send them by post (only from Poland) or courier. The passport can be send back by post if an applicant attaches to the application an additional return envelope. If the passport is to be picked up by courier, it has to be arranged by an applicant. It is suggested to use a trusted courier service to ensure the safety of your passport and attached documents. Another person can pick up the passport if a passport holder presents the Embassy the data of the person by email. Moreover, the person should have an authorization in paper to pick up the passport.
