The International Organization for Migration’s mobile app, MigApp, offers reliable and practical information to help migrants make well-informed decisions during their journeys. The latest version of the digital platform keeps users updated on risks, visa issues, health care, rights and policies. The app also offers other services valuable to migrants. And it helps you to stay connected with other migrants. In short, MigApp is the convenient one-stop-shop to meet migrants’ needs.

When migrating to another country, it can be challenging to find reliable answers to important questions relating to such issues as visa regulations or where to find support in the country in question. Migrants often have many questions:

  • What are the possible risks that I face?
  • Which visa regulations apply?
  • Where can I get help when I encounter health problems?
  • Have there been any changes to rules and regulations recently?

MigApp provides a wide range of up-to-date information – all in one user-friendly app.
