IOM in Romania

IOM activities in Romania were sanctioned by HG 568/1992 regarding the ratification of the Agreement between the Romanian Government and IOM, in respect to the legal status of the Organization.

Romania has become an IOM member state in 1998 when the Law 123/1998 was passed, accepting the IOM Constitution.

On 8 May 2008, a Tri-partite Agreement was signed in Bucharest by IOM, UNHCR, and the Romanian Government, concerning the temporary evacuation in Romania or persons in urgent need of international protection, and their onward resettlement.
