Afghanistan has a history of more than six thousand years, with many historical monuments and attractions, including more than two thousand years of famous Buddha statues, the tomb of Hazrat Ali (son of the Prophet Muhammad and the fourth caliph of Islam) in Mazar-i-Sharif , The beautiful city of Balkh (also known as the mother of all cities) and the lakes of Band-e Amir in Bamiyan province.
To help the tourism industry in Afghanistan, the government is strongly encouraged and fully supported by the private sector to invest in the tourism industry. With ever-increasing global tourism, the Afghan tourism industry has enormous potential to become profitable. The Afghan Foreign Ministry is ready to support any attempt that would further develop the tourism industry in Afghanistan.
