Bosnia and Herzegovina: Mixed migration flows
Created: 22/01/2021 +


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.
