voluntary Repartiation centres
The Voluntary Repatriation Center (VRC) Peshawar is located in Gul Abad, Chamkani on main Grand Trunk (GT) road and remains open from Sunday to Thursday 08:00 to 3:30pm. The voluntary repatriation of registered Afghan Refugees are daily processed though this VRC. Upon arrival to Voluntary Repatriation Centre (VRC) Chamkani, the Afghan returnees sign a Voluntary Repatriation Form (VRF). CAR’s priorities when it comes to return are to promote enabling conditions for voluntary repatriation; to ensure the exercise of a free and informed choice; and to mobilize support for returnees. In practice, Commissionerate Afghan Refugees KP promotes and facilitates voluntary repatriation through various means, including organizing "go-and-see" visits for refugees; compiling updated information on their country and region of origin Read More

Urban Refugees Cell
After the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979 a large number of Afghan Refugees, which is recorded over 4.4 million, sought refuge in Pakistan. These refugees took refuge in different areas of KP and FATA. The CAR was established to facilitate these refugees on emergency basis in coordination with UNHCR. The refugee villages were established for the settlement of these refugees. Later on Education/CDU/ Health directorates were established to provide services in the concerned fields.
In the past the Government/UNHCR formulated the policies which were emphasized for the refugees residing in camps. After the discontinuation of assistance by the world community and closure of camps the refugees shifted to urban areas for their livelihood. There is no such mechanism for the management of urban refugees as this is the missing link in the refugee framework. Read More

Furthermore, the Legal Cell having three legal advisors are also managed by this unit. Its mandate includes to serve as a unit to create a communication and decision making platform for results in Commissionerate-wide efficiencies and synergies.Read More
