   Welcome to IOM Viet Nam  




The International Organization for Migration (IOM) is committed to the principle that humane and orderly migration benefits migrants and society. As an intergovernmental body, IOM acts with its partners of member states, civil society, and the international community to: 



• assist in meeting the operational challenges of migration;
• advance understanding of migration issues;
• encourage social and economic development through migration;
• uphold the human dignity and well-being of migrants.




Viet Nam’s rapid economic development is fuelling large migration flows from rural areas to urban and peri-urban areas where employment opportunities are increasingly more available. According to some government offices, an estimated 25-30 percent of Viet Nam’s largest cities consist of migrants. These internal migrants often have difficulty accessing accommodation, education for their children, and health care. With regard to international migration, some three million Vietnamese live permanently overseas with another 400,000 residing abroad as temporary workers.
