Failed migration

Other Names:
Early return migration

Due to loneliness, unfavourable working conditions, or economic and familiar problems, migrants may return to their own country prematurely.


About 20% of Sri Lankan housemaids working in the Middle East return within 18 months, thus ending prematurely their 2-year contract.
