In 2021, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) in Haiti provided reception and post-arrival assistance to 19,629 adult and child migrants repatriated to Haiti by both air and sea to Port-au-Prince and Cap-Haïtien. The vast majority - 76 per cent - were returned by flight from the United States, while smaller proportions were returned by other countries and territories in the region, mainly the Bahamas, Cuba, Mexico and the Turks and Caicos Islands. A small number of migrants were returned after being intercepted at sea by the Coast Guard. Most returns by air and sea that took place in 2021 - 84 per cent - occurred between the months of September through December 2021, with the largest waves arriving from 19 September onward.
