Internship and Volunteer Applications

The Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan in Tokyo is looking for students interested in joining the Embassy’s Internship Program to gain valuable experience in IR. The main purpose of the Internship Program is to provide the interns with the opportunity of working in a foreign affairs arena while the Embassy benefits from the Intern’s contributions. The internship position is available across a range of disciplines related to the work of the Embassy, and the interns are expected to work closely with Afghan diplomats. Working in an Embassy is a privilege that few people get to experience, so take advantage of this opportunity to learn first-hand how the various sections of the Embassy operate. The internship is a non-paid program. The embassy will not offer any assistance to the intern financially or logistically.
