This paper utilises survey data of return migrants to analyse the determinants of remittances sent while the migrants were abroad. We approach our research question from the perspective

as during the migration experience. Using a two-part model, we show that the decision to remit and the amount remitted depend on a combination of different migrant characteristics

‘compelled’. We show that the two groups have different incentives to remit which can help explain the link between type of migrants and their remittance behaviour.
