UNHCR data reveal that almost one hundred people irregularly enter Serbia from FYROM and Bulgaria every day.
UNHCR reveals a total of 294 irregular arrivals in Serbia from May 5 to May 8: 189 from FYROM and 105 from Bulgaria.
The Serbian Ministry of Interior reports that in total, 164 people expressed the intention to claim asylum in the first two weeks of May.
In total, 2,881 migrants have asked for asylum in Serbia this year.
Migrants in Serbia can be accommodated in the Reception Center in Preševo, in the Refugee Aid Points in Šid, and in the asylum center in Krnjača, near Belgrade. Krnjača is the only center in Serbia where people without any papers and documentation can find shelter, legal and medical help.
In the period May 12-15, an average of 290 asylum seekers were also waiting on a daily basis for admission to Hungary at the two transit zones, Röszke and Tompa, through which people can legally enter Hungary from Serbia.
According to UNHCR, hygienic conditions for people waiting to be admitted in the transit zones remain a serious concern, with asylum seekers staying in improvised tents and without any sanitary facilities nearby. Daily garbage collection is still a challenge while the installation in both sites of chemical toilets remain pending the approval from the authorities.
