Within the scope of efforts to prevent irregular migration and deport illegal migrants, 131 irregular migrants from Afghanistan were sent back to their countries from Istanbul Airport.
Illegal immigrants who do not have the right to stay legally or who are involved in judicial proceedings continue to be handed over to the Provincial Migration Administration Tuzla Repatriation Center after they are caught.
In this context, 131 illegal immigrants from Afghanistan were brought to Istanbul Airport by buses in the morning. After the procedures here, the migrants were deported by plane.
The relevant restriction codes are also entered for the deported illegal migrants, preventing them from re-entering Turkey illegally.
As a result of the ongoing work, approximately 250 illegal immigrants whose procedures were completed at the Tuzla Repatriation Center were sent back to their countries from Istanbul Airport every day, while 76,787 illegal immigrants were subjected to procedures between January 1, 2022 and June 21.
Deportations will continue in the upcoming days according to the plan.
