Afghans from Herat being sent to Iran to work

afghans in iran jpgA commission has been assigned to provide visa facilities for 20,000 Afghans to work in neighboring Iran, an official from Herat said.

Governor Fazlullah Wahidi said the initiative was aimed at tackling unemployment and preventing illegal travel of Afghan youth to Iran.

This comes as the Iranian government expelled virtually 100,000 Afghans from Iran.

According to Pajhwok Afghan News (PAN), the commission would identify the “eligible” Afghans and those deported from Iran and would introduce on a daily basis about 100 Afghan workers to the Iranian consulate.
