Pakistan — Flow Monitoring of Undocumented Afghan Returnees from Pakistan (03 - 16 December 2022)
Dec 16 2022
- Flow Monitoring
Between 3 December and 16 December 2022, 2,462 undocumented Afghan nationals spontaneously returned to Afghanistan, including 784 through the Torkham border point and 1,678 through the Chaman border point. Border authorities facilitated the return of 250 individuals due to the lack of legal documentation to remain in Pakistan. Therefore, information about these individuals is not included in the count. Although IOM identified 2,462 undocumented Afghan returnees at two border crossings, this may not reflect the total number of undocumented Afghan returnees. Moreover, for this study, only the head of household or representative of the family were interviewed. This means that the number of interviews conducted by the enumerators is lower than the number of returnees recorded by IOM. Between 3 December and 16 December 2022, IOM interviewed 120 respondents.
