Pakistan — Flow Monitoring of Undocumented Afghan Returnees from Pakistan (18 June - 01 July 2023)

- Flow Monitoring
Between 18 June and 01 July 2023, 6,656 undocumented Afghan nationals spontaneously returned to Afghanistan, including 5,707 through the Torkham border point and 949 through the Chaman border point. Border authorities facilitated the return of 156 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 44,836 undocumented Afghan returnees (between 1 January - 01 July 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 18 June and 01 July 2023, IOM interviewed 134 respondents.
