IOM in Austria

Since 1952, when Austria joined IOM as one of its first Member States, the IOM office in Vienna has worked to assist migrants and promote adequate responses to migration issues, bearing in mind the well-being of migrants and the interests of States and their societies. In particular, in the wake of several crises during and immediately after the end of the Cold War era, Austria received large numbers of refugees, many of whom were subsequently resettled with the help of IOM and other agencies.

The IOM office in Vienna has undergone a number of changes over the years including its status as a Mission with Regional Functions (1997-2005) as well as its function as a Special Liaison Mission (2008-2011).

IOM Vienna currently consists of two offices:

  • IOM Country Office for Austria
  • IOM Regional Office for South-Eastern Europe, Eastern Europa and Central Asia.
