Migrants are among one of the most vulnerable groups in Maldivian society. They make up just under 25 per cent (94,086 people as per UN 2015 mid-year stocks) of the country’s total population. An additional estimated 25,000 irregular migrants also live in Maldives. Most migrants enter Maldives through regular means but some overstay their visas. The vast majority of migrants come from Bangladesh (58%), India (24%) and Sri Lanka (10%) and 92 per cent are male, many of whom are employed in unskilled labour in the construction and tourism industries.
