Summary

From 26 September to 09 October 2021, 2,115 undocumented Afghan migrants returned to Afghanistan, including 309 through the Torkham border point and 1,806 through the Chaman border point. The number of individuals who returned through the Torkham border crossing remained low as a consequence of the restrictions imposed by the Pakistan Border Authorities in light of the security situation at the border with Afghanistan and the evolving COVID-19 pandemic.
