STATISTICS ON ENFORCEMENT OF IMMIGRATION LEGISLATION [16 December 2014]
Data from September 2014. Most recent data: Further Eurostat information, Main tables and Database.
This article presents the European Union (EU) indicators on the enforcement of immigration legislation (EIL). It provides statistics on non-EU citizens refused entry at external borders, apprehended as being illegally present or subject to an obligation to leave the territory of an EU Member State. The indicators in this article can be regarded as an official record of persons subject to enforcement of immigration legislation, providing a general overview of the outcomes of territorial surveillance and control procedures.
According to the available data, irregular migration to the EU decreased significantly between 2008 and 2011, then stabilised over the last three years. The situation for individual EU Member States however varies in trend and level due to specific national factors such as national wealth, history and culture, geographical position, type and length of borders, border infrastructure, border control, judicial procedures, national policy and the legal framework related to irregular migration.
