The Afghan Refugee Status

UNHCR: Pakistan extends Afghans‘ refugee status
July 01, 2013 - The United Nations refugee agency says Pakistan has extended refugee status for more than one million Afghans who are living in the country.

The agency made the announcement on Friday, saying Islamabad agreed to extend the Afghan refugees’ status while it thinks of implementing a new policy.


The refugee status for 1.6 million Afghans in Pakistan was set to expire on June 30.
