Pakistan — Flow Monitoring of Undocumented Afghan Returnees from Pakistan (6 - 19 Dec 2020)
Dec 19 2020
- Flow Monitoring
IOM Pakistan collects data on the outflows of undocumented Afghan migrants at the Torkham and Chaman border crossing points in an effort to better understand the migration movements of undocumented Afghan migrants returning to Afghanistan from Pakistan. This exercise is part of the European Union funded project “Regional Evidence for Migra on Analysis and Policy (REMAP)”. From 6 to 19 December, 265 undocumented Afghan migrants returned to Afghanistan, including 57 through the Torkham border point and 208 through the Chaman border point. During the reporting period, border authorities also facilitated the return of 64 individuals due to the lack of legal documentation to remain in Pakistan. Therefore, information concerning these 64 individuals is not included in the report.
