Interior Minister Eli Yishai said Wednesday that migrants from the Ivory Coast have less than a week to leave the country and if they do not, the Population, Immigration and Borders Authority (PIBA) will deport them.

"In less that a week the deadline given to the migrants from the Ivory Coast to leave the country voluntarily will expire," said Yishai.

The interior ministry offered any migrant who leaves of his or her own free will a grant of $500 per adult and $100 per child. If they do not leave before that deadline, they will be deported without receiving a grant.
