In early October, Pakistan’s Ministry of Interior announced a decision to enact the “Illegal Foreigners’ Repatriation Plan (IFRP),” setting a deadline for unregistered or undocumented foreigners to voluntarily return to their countries or face deportation. In early December, IOM Afghanistan conducted a household-level phone survey among 4,031 returnee respondents to better understand their priority needs, current conditions including access to services, and migration histories and intentions. Phone numbers for this sample were obtained from the overall returnee caseload that IOM has been supporting at the border with Pakistan.
