343 Afghan refugees returned to Afghanistan from Pakistan on Tuesday, according to a statement from Afghanistan’s Ministry of Refugees and Repatriation. 

The Afghan migrants came via the Spin Boldak Crossing in Southern Kandahar province. They were referred to the International Organization for Migration (OIM).

A further 211 Afghan refugees entered the country from Pakistan on Monday at the Spin Boldak crossing, while another 120 did so a few days earlier.

According to the UNHCR’s recent report, most Afghan migrants return from neighbouring countries due to the high cost of living and lack of job opportunities in the host countries.

Additionally, it has been reported that thousands of Afghan migrants have recently returned to Afghanistan from Pakistan and Iran. Some refugees returned home voluntarily, while others were compelled to leave their host country.

Since the return of the Taliban to power, most migrants have fled the country due to prosecution, lack of job opportunities, and security threats.

On the other hand, the vast majority of the population in the country faces several challenges, including extreme poverty, hunger, unemployment, and security challenges.
