This page contains all the information related to the Immigration Services Agency's efforts to combat human trafficking.
Human trafficking refers to the capture, transportation, and acceptance of human beings through means of violence, threats, kidnapping, fraud, or abuse of their vulnerable position for the purpose of forcing them to work or exploiting them through prostitution.
The Immigration Services Agency works with other relevant administrative organs to help victims of human trafficking or those who are thought to possibly be victims, with the first priority being to protect them and, if necessary, to seek the judgment of more specialized administrative organs.
If you yourself are a victim of human trafficking, or if you have information pertaining to human trafficking, please contact one of the counters listed in the PDF file below.
From a humanitarian perspective, human trafficking is a serious human rights violation that requires a swift and appropriate response.
Human trafficking, a crime that disproportionately targets women and children, causes severe physical and psychological trauma in its victims from which it is often very difficult to recover. Because of this, and the fact that the crime is committed across and despite national borders, the issue is of deep concern to the international community.
Hence, starting with the Immigration Services Agency of the Ministry of Justice, relevant agencies are working together to promote and implement measures to combat human trafficking.
