Informed Migration, Boundless Opportunities

IOM Has Donated COVID-19 Personal Protective Equipment to the Migration Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs

The protective overalls, face masks, respirators and disposable gloves will greatly facilitate the work of officials of the MIA Migration Department and reduce the risk of contamination of both themselves as well as the migrants who they have contacts with on a daily basis. This concerns both the immigrants residing in the Temporary Migrant Accommodation Centre as well as citizens of Georgia who return to their native country through the readmission procedure. The procurement of the equipment was possible through utilizing funds from the ad-hoc facility of the SBMMG project funded by the European Union.
