16 Nov 2021 Yemen Download

In October 2021, IOM Yemen DTM estimates that 4,300 migrants entered Yemen, compared to 2,769 migrants in September 2021. The increase in the number of migrants in October comparing to September is due to improved weather conditions and the smugglers changed the routes to avoid the Djiboutian coast guards during patrols allowing boats to travel to landing points on Yemen’s coastal side. DTM estimates that 6,158 Yemeni returns from KSA during the month of October 2021, compared to 4,228 in September and 2,769 Yemenis in August 2021. During the period between 1 January and 31 October 2021, an estimated 20,380 migrants and 16,208 Yemenis arrived in Yemen.
