Illegal Migration

Entry of a person or a group of persons across a country’s border, in a way that violates the immigration laws of the destination country, with the intention to remain in the country, is illegal migration. Attempting to enter any country illegally puts your life in grave danger.

Illegal migration often results in becoming a victim of human trafficking, slavery or forced labour, or prostitution. People smugglers take advantage of your illegal status and exploit you. In reality your journey is unlikely to be as promised and once you are halfway you or your family may find yourself a victim of organised crime, as demands are made for more money. There is a high risk of never reaching your desired destination.

Entering any country illegally is a crime. You could end up facing deportation or/ detention if you are found with forged documents or without a valid visa and passport. Illegal migration often results in financial exploitation, with landlords or employers taking advantage of migrants’ illegal status. As long as you remain in any country illegally, there’s always the fear of being caught and facing jail or deportation.

If you do decide to migrate, do so legally in order to avoid these risks and dangers.
