In an urgent initiative, the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) initiated the registration process for undocumented Afghan nationals in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan, on Monday. This critical step is aimed at addressing the needs of Afghan citizens returning to their home country.
NADRA has taken swift action by deploying 22 mobile vans, sourced from various locations across Pakistan, to Landi Kotal for the purpose of registering these returning citizens. The mobile registration units are expected to streamline the registration process and provide crucial support for those in need.
To further facilitate this operation, 20 registration counters will be established at the transit point, accompanied by the deployment of 140 NADRA employees who will work tirelessly around the clock, ensuring that the registration process remains accessible without interruption. This continuous service is particularly crucial, considering the urgent nature of the situation.
Effective from November 1, NADRA has bolstered its daily registration capacity to accommodate up to 15,000 registrations per day, a testament to their commitment to assisting the returning Afghan nationals. The presence of senior NADRA officers on-site further underscores the importance of providing all necessary assistance to these foreign nationals as they embark on their journey back to Afghanistan.
This proactive measure by NADRA exemplifies Pakistan’s dedication to addressing the needs of Afghan nationals during a period of transition, demonstrating their commitment to humanitarian support and crisis management.
