Welcome to IOM Mozambique. We invite you to explore our various programmes, publications and tools to gain a bit of insight into what we do in Mozambique.

Mozambique is a member state of IOM since 2011 and since 2005 IOM has an agreement with the Government of Mozambique concerning its legal status. The organization is since 1994 continuing to provide technical assistance to the Government in relation to mixed migration, labor migration and health, as well as disaster risk reduction and humanitarian assistance during emergency situations. Mozambique is one of eight global pilot projects of the Delivering as ONE initiative, a United Nations’ reform measure, that brings together all represented UN agencies to work as one towards common development objectives that are aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). IOM participates actively in the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) and the United Nations Country Team (UNCT).

International Organization for Migration (IOM)

Established in 1951, IOM is the leading inter-governmental organization in the field of migration and works closely with governmental, intergovernmental and non-governmental partners. With 162 member states, a further 9 states holding observer status and offices in over 100 countries, IOM is dedicated to promoting humane and orderly migration for the benefit of all. It does so by providing services and advice to governments and migrants.

IOM works to help ensure the orderly and humane management of migration, to promote international cooperation on migration issues, to assist in the search for practical solutions to migration problems and to provide humanitarian assistance to migrants in need, including refugees and internally displaced people. IOM works in the four broad areas of migration management:

  • Migration and development
  • Facilitating migration
  • Regulating migration
  • Forced migration.

IOM activities that cut across these areas include the promotion of international migration law, policy debate and guidance, protection of migrants' rights, migration health and the gender dimension of migration.


  • International Albinism Awareness Day / Dia Internacional da Consciência do Albinismo 2018

    This year is the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted by the UN on 10 December 1948. In light of the fundamental pledge made in 2015 by all member states of the United Nations to leave no one behind, starting with the furthest behind first, it is essential for all stakeholders to support persons with albinism in their quest for the enjoyment of their human rights. (Portuguese version follows)
