The Process of Victim Protection

Various support centers of relevant administrative organs, including the Immigration Services Agency, respond to cases of persons who have been determined to be victims of human trafficking (or are possibly victims of such).

Cooperation with the International Organization for Migration (IOM)

The Immigration Services Agency has built a cooperative relationship with IOM with regards to interviews and victim certification for human trafficking victims. In cases in which the victim wishes to return to his/her home country, IOM provides assistance for voluntary return.

Additionally, after victims return home, IOM provides social rehabilitation support to prevent victims from falling prey to human trafficking again. Such support is tailored to each individual case and is provided with respect for the victim’s wishes and intent.
