Embedding with Afghan Forces
In addition to opportunities with Resolute Support, journalists may also seek to embed with Afghan National Defense and Security Forces (ANDSF) units by applying for such opportunities through the Afghan Ministry of Defense (MoD). If you are interested in embedding with ANDSF, you should contact the MoD to initiate the embed process. The ministry has established procedures to process media visit requests.
TO EMBED WITH AFGHAN UNITS, PLEASE CONTACT:
Afghan Ministry of Defense - http://mod.gov.af/en/page/media-embed-request-form
All media are required to register with the Government of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan as per the country's mass media law at its website. Please note that this process is separate from and in addition to RS credentialing and obtaining an Afghan journalist visa.
*Please ensure that all paperwork with MoD is completed and approved prior to arranging for travel to Afghanistan. In order to embed or interview with the ANDSF you must have prior approval. All paperwork must be ready and scheduled for pick up at MoD prior to arrival. In some cases, MoD may request your presence prior to issuing approval.
