This map presents the current migratory situation in Europe. Each circle represents one of the main migratory routes into the EU. Click on a circle or one of the countries of origin to see more details.
Source: FRAN and JORA data as of May 2021. The data presented refer to detections of illegal border-crossing rather than the number of persons, as the same person may cross the external border several times. However, there is currently no EU system in place capable of tracing each person’s movements following an illegal border-crossing. Therefore, it is not possible to establish the precise number of persons who have illegally crossed the external border.
