Quite often established migrants offer assistance and support that facilitate the arrival of new migrants. Why would migrants want other migrants to join them-so much so as to be willing to pay for them to come? We suggest a rationale. Our modeling framework is capable of explaining several stylized facts pertaining to transfers by migrants and the structure and dynamics of migration.
