102 Senegalese Migrants Voluntarily Repatriated From Libya

This Thursday, Senegal has seen 102 migrants coming from Libya. It was around 8:30 pm that they crossed the Senegalese soil.

They were greeted at Diass International Airport, where they filled out several forms. These migrants increase to 645, the number of Senegalese assisted by the International Organization for Migration.

Initially, they had to be 180 migrants to benefit from the services of the National Committee for Refugee Management; Repatriated and Displaced Persons (NPRRPD) and IOM support.


Their identification in Libya was facilitated by Senegal’s consular representation in Libya based in Tunisia. This operation, which is voluntary and humanitarian, is part of the European Union-IOM Trust Fund initiative. In addition, the Senegalese Red Cross lent them a hand in transporting them to their respective localities. In addition, state authorities were present on their arrival to welcome them home.

Thus, sustainable reintegration activities are planned at the local community level.

This is the EU-FMI initiative that aims to protect migrants, but also helps to reintegrate them. It is funded by the European Union and reinforces the governance of migration.
