Description

In September 2022, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) in Haiti provided reception and post-arrival assistance to 478 adult and child migrants repatriated to Haiti by both air and sea to Port-au-Prince and Cap-Haïtien. This amounts to 21,215 repatriations in 2022, and is in addition to nearly 20,000 migrants returned and assisted in 2021. In contrast to 2021 and earlier months in 2022, when the vast majority of migrants were returned by the United States, the largest group of returned migrants in September 2022 were returned by flight from Turks & Caicos, followed by the United States, with smaller but nevertheless substantial proportions returned by other countries and territories in the region. A number of migrants were returned after being intercepted at sea by the United States Coast Guard.
