A senior official said Afghanistan will start issuing passports to its citizens again on Tuesday after a delay of months.

The acting head of the passport office, Alam Gul Haqqani, told reporters in Kabul that they would issue 5,000 to 6,000 passports a day and that women would be appointed to handle the processing of documents of female citizens.

Their travel has been hampered by delays in issuing passports to several Afghans, including those trying to flee the country. The process had slowed even before the Taliban took control of the country in August.
