Summary

The key finding of this report is that motivations for Pakistani emigration revolve primarily around seeking better livelihood and income opportunities. This is reinforced by the historical relevance of labour migration out of Pakistan as well as previous data collection and analyses by IOM DTM. A secondary driver of migration for Pakistani migrants is the opportunity to continue or receive better quality education abroad. Finally, this report emphasizes the integral role of transnational social networks in influencing destination choice and migration decisions among Pakistani migrants.
