- Flow Monitoring
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 “Regional Evidence for Migra on Analysis and Policy (REMAP)”. From 20 December 2020 to 2 January 2021, 205 undocumented Afghan migrants returned to Afghanistan, including 38 through the Torkham border point and 167 through the Chaman border point. During the reporting period, border authorities also facilitated the return of 59 individuals due to the lack of legal documentation to remain in Pakistan. Therefore, information concerning these 59 individuals is not included in the report.
