How to Apply to Direct Access Program
Jordan has been a member state to IOM since 1999.
IOM established its office in Amman in 1994. Its activities were primarily related to processing applications for the North Africa and Middle East region for refugee resettlement to the United States, Canada, Australia, and Europe through its Resettlement Support Centre (RSC).
Since 2004, activities have expanded to include programmes on building capacity of the Jordanian Government to improve migration management and on directly assisting migrants in need.
Most recently, and as part of the United Nations Country Team (UNCT) regional response to the Syrian Crisis, IOM in Jordan has been assisting Syrian refugees in Jordan through repatriation assistance to Third Country Nationals (TCNs) fleeing from Syria into Jordan, emergency evacuation assistance to Syrians from borders to camps, primary health care to Syrians as and where needed, and Tuberculosis Screening and Awareness Sessions for Syrians and host communities.
Currently the IOM Jordan Staff consists of 238 individuals, of whom 41 are international staff and 197 are local staff.
