Safety at Sea

This information is for people who are considering to cross the sea in one of the following three areas:

regionen2

Our intention is neither to deter people from attempting to cross, nor to encourage them, but rather to provide objective information and to share experiences about risks, rights, and vital safety measures to take at sea.

For twenty years, the EU has been denying visas to most applicants. Many of them wish to emigrate anyway and attempt to cross the sea clandestinely. This crossing constitutes an offence and is very dangerous: during the last twenty years, more than 17,000 deaths have been recorded at the maritime borders of the European Union. Please always keep in mind that this information might save your life, but it will not make your journey less dangerous.

You are welcome to spread this information to people who might need it.
