A new migration route map which means two different origins. Indeed, Sub-Saharian people usually prefer pass through Libya and Italy to reach Europe. While Syrians and Iraqis have definitely chosen the Greek route. As reported by Hellenic Coast Guard, “77,392 of the newly arrived migrants are from Syria, 38,116 from Afghanistan, 23,078 from Iraq, 5,085 from Pakistan and 4,369 from Iran.” And from January 2015 to March 2016 IOM calculated “1,003,184 arrivals to Greece by sea.”

And like Kelly Namia of the IOM Athens office said, “It should be emphasized that there was a significant decrease in daily arrivals in March 2016, when 24,727 have reached Greece. The majority of the newly arrived migrants have reached the island of Lesbos, which accounted for 58% of the overall arrivals. Another 23 % arrived in Chios, 6% in Samos and 6% in Leros.”
