WB Q3 2015


Key findings:

  • Record numbers of non-regional transiting migrants
  • Screening and registration capacity severely overstretched given the large numbers (>40% of the non-regional flow reported as ‘unknown nationality’)
  • Migration en masse used as an efficient modus operandi to overwhelm conventional border measures
  • Organised transportation provided by different authorities shifted the focus away from border management and security towards migration management, clearly accelerating the flow
  • Syrians remain the most detected nationality closely followed by Afghans, increased presence of Iraqi and Pakistani migrants observed
  • Regional flow remains low and is not aligned with typical seasonal trends
