IOM in Albania

IOM has been operationally present in Albania since 1992, although Albania became an IOM member state in 1993. Since then, IOM has become one of the main international partners of the Government of Albania, supporting its continuous progress and efforts in migration management in line with Albania’s priorities of European Union integration.

IOM is a member of the UN Country Team in Albania and actively contributes to the implementation of the Government of Albania-United Nations Programme of Cooperation 2012-2016, which aligns the support, funds and programmes of 19 UN agencies including IOM, to Albania’s development priorities.
