Summary

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 “Displacement Tracking Matrix Regional Evidence for Migration Analysis and Policy (DTM REMAP)”. From 04 to 17 June 2022, 3,002 undocumented Afghan migrants returned to Afghanistan from Pakistan, including 322 through the Torkham border point and 2,680 through the Chaman border point. During the reporting period, border authorities facilitated the return of 103 individuals due to the lack of legal documentation to remain in Pakistan. Therefore, information concerning these 103 individuals is not included in the report analysis.
