The world’s foreign migrant population in 2013 was an estimated 232 million (persons residing outside their country of birth), according to the United Nations Population Division. The International Labour Organization (ILO) estimated (in 2010) the population of foreign migrant workers at more than 105 million – with more than 30 million (almost 30 per cent) in Asia. Latest government data place the total annual outflow from five countries in South Asia at 2.5 million migrant workers per year. India is the largest sending country (at 747,000 workers), followed by Pakistan (623,000 workers), Nepal (454,000 workers), Bangladesh (409,000 workers) and Sri Lanka (282,000 workers). South Asian migrant workers are found around the world, with the migration trends becoming increasingly complex these days. Migrant movements within South Asia are mainly to India (primarily from Nepal and Bangladesh) and to Pakistan (mainly Afghan refugees). Within Asia, there is a steadily increasing flow of South Asian workers to East and South-East Asia, with Malaysia the primary destination. Though smaller in number, workers are also choosing the Republic of Korea and entering under the Employment Permit System, introduced in 2006.
