Afghanistan has restarted international flights. However, all routine immigrant and non-immigrant visa processing are suspended. Point-of-entry screening has been introduced. Not everyone is being screened, but those who are and who show a temperature of more than 38ºC may be sent for isolation direct to one of 2 national hospitals (Kabul Infectious Disease and Afghan-Japan Communicable Disease Hospital in Kabul) or 5 provincial hospitals. These hospitals are outside of the Enhanced Security Zone.
