The Provincial Directorate of Afghan Refugees in Nangarhar province has announced that 534 Afghan migrant families have returned from Pakistan as part of the ongoing trend of Afghan migrants returning to Afghanistan.

On Tuesday, the government announced through a press release that these migrants had entered the country via the Torkham border on Monday.

According to the head of the Afghan migrants in Nangarhar province, 534 families, totalling 3,032 individuals, have been registered with the Migration Directorate for assistance and have been referred to the offices of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

On the other hand, officials in the Taliban administration have announced that 3,165 Afghan migrants returned to the country from Iran on Monday.

According to an Iranian border official, 304 migrants in need have been referred to the International Organization for Migration for assistance.

It is worth noting that the Ministry of Migrants and Repatriates of the current administration of Kabul has also reported the return of 384 Afghan migrant families from Pakistan voluntarily and involuntarily.

This comes amidst increasing trends of Afghan migrants being expelled from Iran and Pakistan despite growing concerns and reactions about their deportation.

The Pakistan Ministry of Interior has issued a warning, stating that all foreign nationals, including Afghan migrants, must leave the country by the end of October without proper legal documentation, or they will face deportation.
