Fiji became an IOM member state in 2013, and IOM and the Government of Fiji signed a Cooperation Agreement in 2015. IOM established an office in Suva, Fiji in 2017 to work with the Government of Fiji and governments of nearby Pacific Island countries on issues relating to migration, including on the thematic areas of migration and climate change, labour migration and human mobility, migration and development, counter-trafficking and migrant protection, and emergency preparedness and response.

The Republic of Fiji Islands is a large Melanesian archipelago made up of an estimated 332 islands with diverse landscapes and climate in the southwest Pacific Ocean. A large proportion of Fiji’s approximately 912,000 people live on the largest island of Viti Levu, where the capital Suva is located. The main spoken languages are Fijian, Fiji Hindi and English.

Fiji has one of the largest economies among Pacific Island Countries and is one of the least dependent on foreign aid. Fiji achieved half of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and is committed to the 2030 global sustainable development agenda. As a regional hub in the Pacific, Fiji is considered an origin, transit and destination country in the context of international migration.
