Welcome to IOM Ireland’s Migrant Resource Hub, where you can access information, talk to people who understand, as well as assist you understand your own migration journey!

Ireland’s first Migrant Resource Hub was established in January 2020 and is based in the Lower Ground Floor of the IOM Ireland offices at 116 Lower Baggot Street, Dublin 2. It has been designed to facilitate migrants in accessing information around processes, assistance and services available to them, alongside giving migrants a direct link with virtual support in countries of origin.

IOM will also look to host information evenings with embassies  & consulates, migrant-focused service providers and professionals that work with migrant communities across both Ireland and internationally.

IOM’s primary focus is on the welfare of migrants. Here in IOM, we invite you to make contact with us if you wish to find out more about IOM services, service providers in your area and key information that can assist you on your journey. 

On the online Migrant Resource Hub portal, IOM also hosts information materials that will help distill agencies, organisations and avenues that can help you with any support that you may require to better understand and act upon your migration needs.

Virtual Counselling

Making the decision to return to your country of origin can be a difficult task for many people, and we understand this at IOM Ireland. This is why we are offering our new Virtual Counselling service.

Virtual Counselling is a completely free and confidential service whereby a migrant in Ireland can speak to an IOM staff member in the country they are thinking of returning to. These IOM staff members are virtual counsellors. Virtual Counsellors are available across several countries to discuss any queries which you may have. The purpose of this service is to assist migrants in making a more informed decision before returning and ask any questions which they may have on the country of origin.

There are two types of sessions: 1. Individual sessions 2. Group sessions. The individual sessions consist of a one-to one meeting between the beneficiary and the virtual counsellor. A group session will be an interaction between the virtual counsellor and a group of migrants in Ireland mobilised by IOM Ireland staff who would like to find out more information about the return process. A virtual counsellor would host a maximum of 10 beneficiaries in any one session.
