Cyprus Now Receiving Most Migrants Per Capita in Europe

As migration routes in the Mediterranean sea change, the island of Cyprus is now being inundated with migrants and has the most arrivals per capita.

The migrants, who tend to arrive in Greek southern Cyprus from boats or air from the Turkish-controlled northern part of the island, have come at a rapid pace, according to a report from Swedish broadcaster SVT.

Christoffer Wendick, a correspondent for the broadcaster, said that Cyprus has become attractive to many and is the easiest way to reach the European Union.

“It allows you to take a flight from the Turkish mainland to the Turkish part of Cyprus and it is almost like a domestic flight,” he said.

Another report from the Cyprus Mail released late last month, claimed that Cyprus could have as many as 100,000 migrants in just five years with migrants making up as much as 3.5 per cent of the population overall.
