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 “Displacement Tracking Matrix Regional Evidence for Migration
Analysis and Policy (DTM REMAP)”.
From 05 December to 18 December 2021, 3,627 undocumented Afghan migrants returned to Afghanistan, including 654 through the Torkham border point and 2,973 through the Chaman border point. During the reporting period, border authorities facilitated the return of 32 individuals due to the lack of legal documentation to remain in Pakistan. Therefore, information concerning these 32 individuals is not included in the report analysis.
