El Salvador-Baseline Assesment Of Migration Flows And Mobility Tracking Within The Context Of COVID-19, #3 (December 2020-February 2021)

The social and economic context in El Salvador has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. To enter El Salvador, individuals must present certification of vaccination against COVID-19.

In addition, cases of scams involving false PCR-RT tests have been detected, resulting in many migrants being returned or rejected when trying to enter Salvadoran territory. This report used key informant methodology to characterize migration flows in El Salvador between December 2020 and February 2021.
