OVERVIEW
In October 2022, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) in Haiti provided reception and post-arrival assistance to 88 adult and child migrants repatriated to Haiti by both air and sea to Portau-Prince and Cap-Haïtien. This amounts to 21,303 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, all returned migrants in October 2022 were returned by air from the Bahamas. No returns were conducted from other countries, nor were any migrants returned after being intercepted at sea by the United States Coast Guard.
The number of migrants repatriated in October 2022 (88) is much lower than in preceding months, and almost 54 times smaller than in the same period the previous year (4,730). This is explained by the current context in Haiti, marked by generalized violence fueled by violent protests and civil unrest, an increase in criminal activity, kidnappings and shootings, and widespread gang warfare, both in the Metropolitan Area of Port-au-Prince and other regions around the country. In addition, fuel shortages have had a direct impact on transportation and made it much more difficult to travel around the country. As a result, most repatriations have been put on hold.
