In a tweet, the diplomatic mission in Kabul stated:
“Pakistan Embassy is happy to announce that it would be resuming its full consular services with effect from Sunday, 29 December 2019.”
The visa section was closed by Pakistan’s Embassy in Kabul on November 4 to protest the alleged harassment of its diplomats.
Afghan authorities also declared the resumption of Peshawar consulate general after a 3-month shutdown.
Afghanistan closed the visa services in Peshawar during protests over the removal of its national flag from a disputed area known as the Afghan Market in the city.
