Pakistan has opened more border centers to help Afghan nationals return to Afghanistan. The facilities at the Torkham border crossing have been expanded to accommodate the increasing number of returnees. This comes after a deadline for undocumented Afghans to leave Pakistan passed. The returnees no longer have to wait in long queues. However, those arriving in Afghanistan have complained about the difficulties they faced in leaving Pakistan and the uncertainty about their future. The Afghan caretaker government has set up temporary transit camps to assist those arriving. Despite calls from the United Nations and rights groups to reconsider its expulsion plans, Pakistan has decided to proceed with the expulsion of over 1 million Afghans. The Taliban-run administration in Afghanistan is struggling to manage the sudden influx and has established temporary camps to provide food and medical aid. The Norwegian Refugee Council, Danish Refugee Council, and International Rescue Committee have reported chaotic conditions among those arriving. So far, thousands of Afghans have crossed the border, and authorities have stated that repatriation can be delayed for individuals with health or other issues preventing them from travelling. Pakistan has also relaxed the biometric requirement for Afghan women and children to expedite the process at the borders.
