Key takeaways
Guinea has drafted its New Migration Policy, but it has not come into force yet due to the September 2021 coup d’état.
Despite being a country of major emigration, policies for regular labour emigration are absent, while donor programming on irregular migration is rife.
Guinea’s collaboration with the European Union (EU) is centred around the latter’s priorities of return and reintegration and irregular migration.
