Bosnia and Herzegovina: Mixed migration flows
Approximately 2,700–3,000 asylum seekers and migrants are currently residing outside of formal accomodation in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Most of the people not staying in formal accomodation are located in Una-Sana canton, on the border with Croatia. Migrants not in formal accomodation are particularly vulnerable to cold weather conditions as they can lack adequate shelter and clothing.
Since 2016 – following the closure of the migrant route through Serbia and Hungary – Bosnia and Herzegovina has been experiencing mixed migration flows of people transiting through the country seeking to reach the EU.
