Migration management in the South Asia region is an increasingly important issue because of its increasing share in migration stock and remittances inflow. Since the 1970s, the majority of migrants in this region prefer to go to the Gulf countries to deploy the largest workers. Similarly, South Asian countries have received an increasing amount of remittances to benefit at the household level and national level. However, policies in this region in terms of both labour-sending and receiving countries are not leading to reliable and effective implementation and management. Enforcement of nationalization policies has squeezed the labour market destination for the workers in the Gulf region while persistent conflict among the labour-sending countries hinders the effectiveness of advocacy in labour migration issues. This paper concludes to plan for the reintegration of returned migrants into the local economy for the sustainable labour migration management in South Asia.
