Refugees and asylum-seekers arrive to Tunisia in the context of mixed population movements from neighbouring countries and from sub-Saharan Africa. The majority of refugees in Tunisia are from the Syrian Arab Republic (Syria). People of concern arrive through regular and irregular entry points by air, land and sea or are rescued /intercepted at sea. While a major influx from Libya cannot be ruled out, the refugee population in Tunisia is anticipated to increase from some 2,490 (as of August 2019) to 5,000 by the end of 2020, given the political instability and mixed population movements facing the region. Tunisia will continue to be challenged by the socio-economic crisis, especially in the centre and south of the country, where most refugees are hosted.
