IOM Pakistan collects data on the outflow of undocumented Afghan migrants returnees at the Torkham and Chaman borders in an effort to be er understand migration movements of undocumented Afghan migrants who are returning to Afghanistan from Pakistan. This data collection and analysis activity is part of the Regional Evidence for Migra on Analysis and Policy (REMAP) Project, which targets Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Iran, Iraq and Pakistan and is funded by European Commission, Directorate General for International Cooperation and Development. From November 8 to November 21, 236 undocumented Afghan migrants returned to Afghanistan, including 67 through the Torkham border and 169 through the Chaman border. During the reporting period, border authorities facilitated the return of 25 individuals who returned through Torkham and 47 through Chaman due to the unavailability of legal documentation to remain in Pakistan. Therefore, the analysis of those 72 individuals is excluded in this report.
