Key findings:

  • The number of illegal border-crossings by non-regional migrants dropped to levels normal for the season
  • There was a slight increase in detected illegal border-crossings at BCPs and refusals of entry issued to non-regional migrants as they search for transit alternatives
  • Increase in migratory pressure at the Croatian-Serbian (BCPs) and Romanian-Serbian (green border) borders; the pressure is likely linked to migrants already present in Serbia
  • While the absolute number of facilitators decreased, their number in relation to the number of illegal border-crossings remained stable
  • The irregular flow of citizens of Western Balkan countries rose slightly following seasonal patterns but remained mostly contained to the southern common borders with Greece
