An initiative of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) which, through a mobile app, offers a platform of relevant and up-to-date information so that migrants around the world can make informed decisions. It is available in 8 languages: English, Chinese, Arabic, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and Russian.

Migrants from all five continents need a trusted source of information that also provides them with assistance and support to migrate safely. MigApp is an application that helps migrants to make informed decisions by providing information organized in various thematic and location areas.

In addition, the application also provides the possibility to make international bank transfers at no cost. It also has an option to find out the location of friends and family.

It also provides information on travel risks, access to IOM programmes and services for migrants, and data on migration profiles and trends around the world. This makes it useful not only for migrants and their families, but also for NGOs and governments.

RefAid

Refugee Aid App is an application for migrants and refugees who arrive in Europe to enable them to identify the services they are eligible for and to locate them on a map.

On the services side, human aid and social service NGOs can manage and update their service catalogue, depending on needs and on urgency, through the application’s website. Metges Sense Fronteres, Càritas or Save the Children are some of the international NGOs that are collaborating with the app.

One of the app’s outstanding functionalities is that it safeguards privacy, since in these cases migrants and refugees are often afraid of being returned to the countries of origin if they are identified by the authorities. The application is available for Android and IOs in the United States, Turkey, Greece, Ireland, the United Kingdom, Italy, France, Germany, Belgium, Slovenia, Croatia, Hungary, Bulgaria and Malta.
