HIGHLIGHTS

  • The number of people arriving by sea to the Greek shores has sharply decreased since the beginning of April due to a variety of factors, including an understanding amongst refugee and migrant populations that the Balkan route is now closed, the implementation of the EU-Turkey agreement, and increased border control operations at the Aegean Sea. There was an average of 119 daily arrivals in April compared with 870 daily arrivals in March which constitutes an 85% decrease.
