Why Tanzania destination comes first to illegal immigrants' minds
A geographical reason is the main cause why there are illegal migrants in Tanzania, since it is easier for them to travel in boarded countries.
Tanzania is the first country that comes to migrants’ minds because it shares boarders with other eight countries.
There is no need for visa from Ethiopia to Kenya, so that makes it easy for Ethiopians to come to Tanzania because it only takes 13 hours to travel from Kenya to Tanzania by bus.
Ethiopia is in top notch countries in Africa that practices human trafficking to East Africa because out of 7,000 illegal migrants caught in Tanzania, 6000 of them are Ethiopians, the Ministry of Home Affairs has confirmed.
The Ministry of Home Affairs has more departments than any other ministry in the government; some of them are specifically for refugee while others are for immigration services.
Immigration service department is the safety and security institute in Tanzania. Its main duty is to facilitate and control people’s movements such as foreigners’ legal entry and blocks the illegal migrants.
