Between 1 January and 30 November 2018, 3,485 unaccompanied and separated children arrived in Italy by sea, representing 15 per cent of all sea arrivals in this period. Consistent with an overall decrease in sea arrivals this year so far, the number of UASC reaching Italian shores in the first eleven months of 2018 is considerably lower than in the same period last year, when 15,540 landed in Italy. However, the proportion of UASC among sea arrivals in the January-November 2018 period (15 per cent) is slightly higher than in January-November 2017 (13 per cent).
Between 1 January and 30 November 2018, 23,011 persons arrived in Italy by sea.
This is an 80 per cent decrease compared to sea arrivals in the same period last year (117,042). In November 2018, less than 1,000 persons reached Italian shores. This is comparable with arrival numbers in the previous month, when just over 1,000 disembarked in southern Italy. However, it is a reduction compared to monthly arrival numbers in previous years. In November 2017, over 5,600 refugees and migrants were recorded at landing points in southern Italy
