Since 2000, IOM has been delivering basic humanitarian services to smuggled and trafficked irregular migrants intercepted by Indonesian authorities on their way to Australia. Since the inception of this assistance programme, IOM has been providing vulnerable migrants with food assistance, urban shelter, emergency medical assistance, basic health services, assisted voluntary return and reintegration, and resettlement support. As of December 2017, IOM is providing humanitarian support to over 8,500 refugees and asylum seekers in 13 different locations across the country. Indonesia is not party to the 1951 Refugee Convention and refugee status determinations are conducted by UNHCR. With resettlement quotas dwindling and host Government unable to provide protection, this population is locked in a state of protracted transit (including in detention) with far-reaching risks related to their health, protection and general well-being.       

In 2018, IOM plans to continue providing basic humanitarian services to irregular migrants, despite an expected reduction in funding. However, there is an increasing demand to address emerging needs in host community stabilization, mental health and psychosocial support (especially in detention), and community-based protection. Moreover, IOM will continue ongoing and sustained advocacy for alternatives to detention, sustainable pathways and durable solutions for the displaced. Support is needed to fill these anticipated humanitarian gaps and boost policy efforts, for which no funding mechanism currently exists.  

In 2015, IOM led the Andaman Sea Crisis response in Indonesia and the Benjina counter-trafficking emergency operation. IOM is co-leading the Protection and Displacement Cluster (with UNHCR) and leads the Displacement and Camp Management Sub-Cluster. IOM works in coordination with the Indonesian Police, Ministry of Law and Human Rights, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Coast Guard, and the Coordinating Ministry for Politics, Law and Security, UN agencies (including UNHCR, UNICEF, OCHA, etc.), and international and national NGOs.
