Hi cgpettit,

Welcome to expat blog!

Thank you and good luck.

Nothing wrong with South Africans. It is just very difficult now to get into Afghanistan to work in the security industry. The Govt have now made it very difficult for overseas security firms to operate there.

I worked there for 2 yrs and all our security coordinators were ex SA forces and I cannot speak highly enough of how professional they were.

Also, unless you have worked there before it is difficult to get work there.
