As recently reported, the Bilateral Security Agreement has just taken full effect, as of yesterday. This impacts the Department of Defense and NATO coalition contractors working in Afghanistan. Part of the agreement includes provisions about visa requirements and business licenses. The hope is that this ensures everyone is in compliance with the deal negotiated between the United States and Afghanistan. Though this agreement initially went into effect at the start of the new year, grace periods extended it until the end of August.
