Q: I am an interpreter stuck in Afghanistan. Can you get me out?
A: We’re currently exhausting all options to rescue and evacuate Americans and our Allies from Afghanistan and get them to safety. We are also grateful for the more than 12,000 people we evacuated from Afghanistan, but we also know that we left too many behind. Please reach out the State Department at AfghanSIVApplication@state.gov for further instruction. We will not stop until this mission is complete.
