Districts of Afghanistan.

politics and government of

Foreign relations

The provinces of Afghanistan are divided into Wuleswali (Pashto: ولسوالۍwuləswāləi; Persian: شهرستان‎‎) or districts. The number of districts in Afghanistan has fluctuated over the years, with new districts created by splitting or merging parts of others. Prior to 1979, there were 325 districts. This was increased to 329 and, in 2004, a major reorganization led to the number increasing to 397. As of June 2005, the Afghan Ministry of the Interior recognised 398 districts, divided between the 34 provinces. This number is expected to change with further administrative reorganization.

The districts are listed below, by province:
