This  article  is  framed  in  the  specific  migration  scenario  seen  in recent years,in which migrants arrive at the external border of the European Union (mainly Andalusia and the Canary Islands), transit  through  the  Spanish  mainland  to the  border  between  the  Spanish  and French States (located in the autonomous region of the Basque Country) with the intention of continuing on to other countries in northern Europe, such as France, Belgium or Germany, among others. The aim of this paper is to offer a  general  descriptive  overview  of  these  movements  of  people  in  transit through  a  European  State,  as  well  as  to  identify  the  challenges  faced  by institutional resources and processes that have had to be created recently, in order to offer assistance to people to help them in their journey, or to receive them when the circumstances or their transit projects become difficult or are altered.
