The UN Migration Agency, the International Organisation for Migration (IOM), has launched a pilot application, MigrantApp, as part of a global initiative to provide information to facilitate safe and orderly migration using mobile devices.


The pilot has been launched in Mesoamerica and provides reliable, easy-to-use and free information in three languages on governmental, private and civil society services for migrants. The app was developed as part of IOM’s Mesoamerica Programme and was financed by the Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration of the American State Department.
