Migration is a global reality. Each year an estimated 2.5 to 4 million migrants cross international borders without authorisation. In 2005 international migrants in South Africa were estimated to number 11 062 million, or 2.3 per cent of the total population. In 2007 only 250 000 of the migrant workers in South Africa were documented. Statistics show an influx of migrants whose legal status in the country is often uncertain.
