Description

In the first half of this year, the number of illegal border crossings at Europe’s external borders fell by nearly a one-fifth from a year ago to 36 400*, mainly because of the effects of the COVID pandemic. The drop was especially pronounced on the Western and Eastern Mediterranean migratory routes.
In June, the number of illegal border crossings was roughly in line with the previous month at nearly 4 500.
