Points of Entry (PoE)

Migration Along the Eastern Corridor (October 2022)

The Horn of Africa and Yemen is one of the busiest and riskiest migration corridors in the world travelled by hundreds of thousands of migrants, the majority of whom travel in an irregular manner, often relying on smugglers to facilitate movement along the Eastern Route. This regional report provides monthly updates on the complex migratory dynamics through Djibouti, Somalia, Yemen and Ethiopia based on diverse data sources and consultations with key informants in the four countries. Moreover, it provides information on the main protection concerns for migrants along the journey, information on the spill over effects of the conflict in Northern Ethiopia observed at the border between Ethiopia, Kenya and Sudan, a specific focus on children and information on the returns from Saudi Arabia to Ethiopia, Somalia and Yemen.

West and Central Africa — COVID-19 — Regional Point of Entry Analysis Report (June 2022)

To better understand and capture how COVID-19 has been affecting global mobility,  IOM developed a global database (the Mobility Restriction Monitoring, MRM) which  maps, tracks, and analyses the changes and trends in operational status of and mobility  restrictions at Points of Entry (PoEs) including airports, blue border crossing points  (such as seaports and river crossings), land border crossing points and other key transit  points and locations of internal mobility. Outside of operational status for key loca-  tions of internal mobility, MRM collects data on border management and public health  measures adopted at PoEs, as well as coordination systems and referral mechanisms  in place at Points of Entry and some internal mobility points, as well as populations  impacted by COVID-19 mobility restrictions.

Such information is meant to serve IOM member states, IOM, and its UN partner  agencies in responding adequately, and in a targeted manner, to the current and evol-  ving crisis period. In West and Central Africa, IOM missions were involved in providing  information on the situation at the PoEs in their respective countries.

This report presents the findings from data collected on the operational status of  PoEs as of 30 June 2022, with 573 Points of Entry across the region, including 417  land border crossings points, 74 airports and 82 blue border crossing points (maritime borders).
