According to Pant, there used to be about 20 thousand contractors in Afghanistan at one time. Those who have been looking after the responsibility of internal security. Also, interpreters for the US and NATO forces, used to do other work including air craft maintenance. Their dress is also very different. He either wears an army jacket or wears army pants. That is, he wears a part of the army dress. In such a situation, his identity becomes known from afar. This includes local people as well as people from other countries.
There was agreement to give special visa
When the Taliban began to take over Afghanistan, these contractors feared that the Taliban would put them to death if they came to power. In view of this, the US and NATO forces made an agreement with these contractors. Under which they will be given special immigration visa. According to which all countries will give visas in proportion to the number of their contractors. However, the condition of verification for this was a bit strict. In such a situation, it may take more time for them to get the visa. That’s their problem. Because Taliban can punish such people. Who has supported the Americans and NATO countries. However, a Taliban spokesperson has said in the press conference that we will not take out enmity with anyone. And forgive all Afghans.

According to the report of the US Department of Defense, between April and July, about half of the contractors are left. According to the report, in April 2021, about 17000 contractors were working in the US. Which has remained 7800 by the end of July. It is clear that America has rapidly removed these contractors from Afghanistan. But still about 10 thousand contractors are there.
