In 2019, 26.6 thousand illegal immigrants were recorded in Poland, of which more than 13 thousand were working Ukrainians. Radio Poland reports, referring to the press service of the Polish Border Guard.
It is reported that during the year, border guards checked more than 61.3 thousand foreigners in 26.7 thousand points of residence. Violations were found in 26.6 thousand people. In 2018, 15.8 thousand such inspections were conducted, which covered 36 thousand foreigners.
As we reported before, The number of refusals to citizens of Ukraine to enter Poland in 2019 amounted to 58.5 thousand - this is 25% more than the previous year (then it was 46.7 thousand). The analytical center "Europe without barriers" with reference to statistics from the Polish Border Service and data from our own research reports this information.
The vast majority of failures were issued at the land border. When traveling by plane, the probability of rejection is much less, analysts say.
The main reasons for the refusals are the unconfirmed purpose of the trip (34,900) and lack of funds (12,800).
