Mass repatriation efforts continue as over 480,000 Illegal Afghans leave Pakistan

In an ongoing effort to curb the influx of illegal immigrants, Pakistan has witnessed a substantial number of Afghans voluntarily returning to their homeland.

The repatriation initiative, which began months ago, has reached a significant milestone as the total number of illegal Afghan nationals leaving Pakistan has now surpassed 480,000, with the return process showing no signs of slowing down.

From January 30 to February 2, 2024, a total of 2,956 Afghan citizens, comprising 865 men, 793 women, and 1,298 children, made their journey back to Afghanistan.

The repatriation, facilitated by government authorities, has seen 148 families being transported in 121 vehicles, marking a coordinated effort to ensure a smooth return for those choosing to go back to their home country.

This mass repatriation initiative aims to address the concerns surrounding illegal immigration and enhance the security and stability of the region. Government officials have been actively engaged in providing support to those voluntarily returning, ensuring that the process is carried out with efficiency and compassion.
