All-out measures at border crossing points in place to facilitate Afghans

Islamabad, December 10, 2022 (PPI-OT):Pakistan has taken all-out facilitative measures to ensure smooth processing of Afghans at all five border crossing points with Afghanistan. Currently, Pakistan has five operational crossing points with Afghanistan, including Chaman, Torkham, Kharlachi, Ghulam Khan and Angoor Ada. Around 13,000 people daily move to and from Afghanistan through these crossing points that include pedestrians, patients, traders, tourists and transporters.

In addition to hundreds of trade convoys, around 385,000 Afghan travel through the crossing point a month. Despite limited resources and workforce, Pakistan is manning over 100 counters at the crossing points to ensure smooth processing of a heavy inflow of cross-border movement.
