IOM IN YOUR COUNTRY

Overview

The Republic of Mongolia joined IOM as a member in 2008. IOM activities in the country are grounded on a Cooperation Agreement signed on 27 November 2010. In 2011 IOM opened an office in Ulaanbaatar and since then has been contributing to the efforts of the Government of Mongolia to manage migration effectively through a wide variety of projects and programmes.

Over the past 20 years, Mongolia has transformed into a vibrant multiparty democracy and the country has experienced an economic boom, driven by the mining sector, with a significant GDP growth as well as increased in-and-outbound migration flows.

International migration has significantly increased with an estimated one in eleven Mongolians living abroad (2011). International migration and mobility of Mongolians is growing exponentially with approximately 65 per cent of Mongolians migrating for economic reasons (IOM, 2010). It is estimated that 130,000 Mongolian migrants were living abroad in 2016, with many in an irregular situation.
