In Greece affected the migration figures for the first half of this year by Turkey deal. The market for smugglers collapsed after the conclusion of the Balkan Borders and the start of the return of mainly economic migrants. Over the past two months, there were no more than two thousand people per month in the Greek islands.

The figures for the first half year are significantly higher (158 311) compared to the same period in 2015 (75 204). This is because the Turkey deal only went in April. Since then, the number of new asylum applications also declined dramatically in the Netherlands.
