Irregular and unsafe migration often is a result of lack of awareness about the risks and the preparation of the travel: ill-informed knowledge of visa, health risks, and the interaction with legitimate service providers.

MigApp is IOMs response to migrants by providing a one-stop-shop platform of relevant and up-to-date information. The MigApp enables migrants to make informed decisions throughout their migration process. The MigApp is IOM’s downloadable app which serves as a one-stop-shop platform where migrants can access current, reliable and practical information and IOM services.
