The ﬁrst six months of 2016 in Sudan witnessed a varie-ty of interconnected, intricate, and parallel population movements, inﬂuenced by numerous factors; highlight-ing the complexity of the drivers of migration in, through and out of Sudan. Migrants in Sudan (internal and external) are experiencing vulnerabilities and are in need of critical life-saving services.
The Operations and Movement Management Unit was established for effective implementation of refugee resettlement and migrants’ assisted voluntary return and reintegration in line with IOM’s global principle of providing dignified, orderly and cost effective services to:
• Refugees hosted in Sudan and selected for resettlement in third countries
• Migration health processing for travel abroad
• Vulnerable migrants willing to voluntarily return to Sudan
• Humanitarian evacuation

Sudan is a source, transit, and destination country for migrants. Sudanese migrants are a mixed group of refugees and asylum seekers, economic migrants and, to a lesser extent, foreign students. The majority are men aged 25–40, and they come from a wide range of socioeconomic and educational backgrounds.
The death toll of the heatwave that is striking Sudan's Northern State increased to 16 on Saturday.
The authorities of Wadi Halfa at the Sudanese-Egyptian border, announced on Saturday that an Egyptian expatriate died that morning of a heatstroke.
Two others were admitted to the Wadi Halfa Hospital in a bad condition. One of them, an Ethiopian, was transferred to the intensive care unit.
Egyptian authorities deported 20 Sudanese nationals to Sudan via Cairo airport on Saturday. They were arrested while trying to illegally cross the border into Libya. From the Libyan coast, fishing boats filled with immigrants leave for Italy.
A security official disclosed to the Egyptian newspaper El Fadjer that the airport security said the Sudanese arrived in the security section of Mersa Matruh. The Sudanese Embassy issued travel documents to them there as they lacked passports, and then deported the group to Khartoum.
