Pakistan — Flow Monitoring of Undocumented Afghan Returnees from Pakistan (04 June - 17 June 2023)
Jun 17 2023
- Flow Monitoring
Between 4 and 17 June 2023, 4,276 undocumented Afghan nationals spontaneously returned to Afghanistan, including 1,757 through the Torkham border point and 2,519 through the Chaman border point. Border authorities facilitated the return of 189 individuals due to the lack of legal documentation to remain in Pakistan. Therefore, information about these individuals are not included in the count. Although IOM identified 38,180 undocumented Afghan returnees (between 1 January - 17 June 2023) 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 4 and 17 June 2023, IOM interviewed 219 respondents.
