Fly the friendly skies to asylum in Austria!
There’s a new Balkan Route for culture-enrichers who long to wage Asylum Jihad in Europe. They simply buy an air ticket from North Africa to Istanbul, and then board a second flight to Belgrade, where people-smugglers take them across Hungary to asylum paradise in Austria

“Asylum!” — Escape to Europe by plane
Not only is the number of arrests in Burgenland increasing dramatically. More and more migrants are flying to Europe quite legally, and only after landing, with the help of smugglers, make their way to the EU via new refugee routes. The “customers” pay almost €5,000 to their criminal companions. Shocking images are only too well remembered by any political observer as desperate emigrants from North African countries faced a life-threatening struggle to reach the Italian island of Lampedusa across the Mediterranean. At the peak of this wave of refugees, more than 2,000 migrants made it to the island within 24 hours. Many future compatriots no longer take this risk.
Legal with a passport
You buy plane tickets, pack the essentials in a small backpack, and off you go to the airport! “The new refugee route is the airlift from North Africa to Istanbul in Turkey and from there to Belgrade, Serbia,” report Austrian border officials abroad. The refugees travel legally with their passports.
“Once they land in Belgrade, most migrants throw away the passport or send the travel document back to their home address,” police officials say, based on research. From the Serbian-Hungarian border, many migrants are brought to Austria by smugglers: “Asylum!”
8,000 at the Hungarian border
More and more North Africans are using the new refugee route by plane. The numbers alone prove that. From January to April 2021, a total of 2,000 migrants were discovered and registered in Burgenland. More than 200 of them were from Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt and Turkey. In the same period this year, 8,000 migrants have already been reported at the border with Hungary.
More than 1300 of them disembarked from Morocco, Algeria and the other three states mentioned. “More refugees are expected in the weeks leading up to the summer,” insiders say. The total number of asylum seekers has already almost quadrupled. Concerned mayors from the border towns are asking themselves: “What else has to happen before high-level politicians react?”
