The Department of Migration Management and the ICT Division have successfully completed the rollout of the Project Information and Management Application (PRIMA) that facilitates the administration of the IOM Development Fund (IDF) and its projects, throughout their life cycles.  

Migrant Application (MigApp)

The ICT Division, in coordination with IOM thematic areas, are pursuing the development of a global mobile project called MigApp.

MigApp offers a central and user friendly, one-stop-shop application where migrants can log on to using their mobile phones to access readily available information and services relevant to their specific migration process.
